"Copyright or right to copy?"

"Bad artists imitate; great artists steal" (Pablo Picasso)
On 11 March 2011 there's a conference coming up in Turin, organised by Elisa Vittone who explains:
"How and how much has contemporary art jeopardised classic rules of protection of artistic works? In 2010, the National Gallery, London and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris organized exhibits, which called concepts of uniqueness, originality and authenticity into question. How can the law settle this? How far is artists’ freedom willing to go? Does a uniform application of resale right really operate in the EU? What impact will the Dalì decision of the European Court of Justice [here] have in the EU State Members?"
The programme for this event -- for which admission is free -- looks like this:
