IPR University Center arranges an upcoming online seminar series Dialogue of Experts focusing on various IPR matters. The seminars feature academic experts and top practitioners in the field of IPR. The series consist of 5 parts.

For many years now, online platforms such as YouTube or Instagram voluntarily employ automated copyright enforcement tools that involve filtering and monitoring. These ’private orders’ mimic copyright law, have often global reach, and are enforced automatically through algorithms. My talk focuses on some of the consequences of private law-making and the move towards automated decision-making, using the example of copyright protection online.


Henning Grosse Ruse-Khan is a University Reader in International and European Intellectual Property Law at the University of Cambridge, a Fellow of King’s College (Cambridge) and an external researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition in Munich (Germany). Henning’s research and teaching focuses on international intellectual property protection and development issues, world trade and investment law, as well as on interfaces amongst legal orders in international law, including transnational law set by private actors.
