This paper was prepared for the Queen Mary (UK) - Fordham Law School (US) - IP Academy (Singapore) London Trilogue in February 2007. It aims to briefly predict some of the copyright issues that are likely to present significant legal and policy challenges over the next ten years. The discussion is based on certain recent trends and developments, such as a proliferation of bilateral free trade agreements, the rise of user-generated content, and the growth of the free software/open source and access to knowledge movements.
