Is copyright necessary? Does it hinder or does it help? What would happen if there was no copyright?  Without it, who benefits and who loses out? Is copyright just for corporations? Or does copyright also serve the interests of individual creators (artists, writers, musicians etc.) more effectively than we might think? Join Smita Kheria, intellectual property law expert (University of Edinburgh), to find out whether copyright matters or could we live without it.  Creators and consumers, professionals and amateurs, rights holders and pirates, come along and have your say!
