The Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR) was set up in the 1998-1999 biennium to examine matters of substantive law or harmonization in the field of copyright and related rights.

The Committee is composed of all member states of WIPO and/or of the Berne Union; and, as observers, certain member states of the United Nations (UN) which are non-members of WIPO and/or the Berne Union, as well as a number of intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations.

The Standing Committee formulates recommendations for consideration by the WIPO General Assembly or a Diplomatic Conference.

EFF will be holding a special side event at the Thirty-Second Session of the SCCR titled Copyright in the Digital Environment: Innovative Solutions from Creators and Users, featuring a keynote presentation from renowned musician Imogen Heap.
