The Society for Economic Research on Copyright Issues (SERCI) was established during the year 2001, with the principal objective of providing a solid academic platform from which scientific debate concerning copyright, dealt with from an economic theory perspective, can be launched and defended. SERCI aims to actively promote and internationally distribute quality academic research relating economic theory to all aspects of copyright and intellectual property of a cultural nature.
The activities of SERCI include, but are not restricted to:
• The maintenance of a web site designed to be a forum of discussion on economic theory and copyright. The general underlying objective of the web site is to provide a useful tool for all individuals and institutions interested in furthering their understanding of efficient copyright management.
• Collection and maintenance of a working paper archive.
• Organization of an annual congress of academics from all over the world, where their research is presented and discussed.
• Distribution of the output of the congress as widely as possible.
