Join us to explore the meaning and use of Intellectual Property (IP), who benefits from copyright, when the use of IP is permitted as inspiration and when it is considered an infringement, what Jamaica’s experiences have been...and what the future holds.  

VPAJ & KOTE present this open discussion with an overall aim to illustrate / debate / explore / critique the current copyright system. Accompanied by film clips and small scale live musical performances, this will be the launch of a series of IP-Focused events.
