OPREA LAURENȚIU

Workshop - Copyright

Coordinator of the Copyright Office – Romanian Television Society – TVR, UPFAR ARGOA Vice President, collective management body of the audiovisual producers.

A legist by profession, I started my professional activity at the Romanian Copyright Office in 1997, where I worked until 2010, being the director of the National Registry and Collective Management Division. In this capacity, I contributed to the development of the collective management system in Romania and of the National Registers in the field. I was part of the collectives of drafting and supporting the legislative projects in the field of copyright and supervised the activity of the collective management bodies. Since 2010 I have been coordinating the copyright service of the Romanian public television with duties of negotiating the copyright contracts for TVR events (Eurovision), licensing, anti-piracy, trademark registration and relationship with the collective management bodies. Starting April 2017, I became vice president of UPFAR ARGOA, the collective management body for the rights of film producers and audiovisual.

I am a lecturer on copyright in the training projects for show organizers and impresarios held by the National Institute for Research and Cultural Training. I was advisor to a deputy from the Culture Commission and to a State Secretary within the Ministry of Culture. I work with the Romanian Concert Organizers Association (AROC) and the Didactic and Pedagogical Publishing House.

I am a member of the Scientific Association for Intellectual Property Rights and I am also a part of the editorial staff of the Romanian Intellectual Property Magazine.
