Innovation Workshop "Creativity and Copyright in the Net Economy"

The Hans-Bredow-Institut is collaborating with Queen Mary and Westfield College at the University of London, the University of Amsterdam and the Catholic University of Leuven to conduct the project, iLinc: Establishing a European Network of Law Incubators that Bridge ICT Entrepreneurs and Start-ups with Law Students”, as supported by the EU Commission. The consortium has been successful in the contestable finance round of the 7thEU general programme.

The projects aims to support educational projects in Europe, where students under supervision make legal expertise available to persons and firms (as yet) unable to afford professional legal advice.
Such advice is needed, for instance, in the early phases of start-ups, so that it is,above all, centres of new enterprise which can profit from it. Such “law clinics” are already a widespread part of education in the USA; in Europe they are just emerging.

In the first instance, the project is intended to highlight the most important challenges met by IT firms and to create models and instruments for fostering the exchange of experience among clinics, for instance, through joint workshops, providing material in data bases and formulating model contracts.

Alongside the four project partners and Brooklyn Law School, which is supporting the project with its advice as consultant, we intend to include further institutions with an interest in developing their own clinics and incubators. The clinic projects at the University of Hamburg and the HIIG in Berlin should profit from the exchange of experience.
