Debates on cultural identity and on intellectual property set the tone at the 68th Frankfurter Buchmesse

At the Frankfurter Buchmesse 2016, it wasn’t only the presentation of the Guest of Honour, Flanders and the Netherlands, that demonstrated what determines our cultural identity, or how a sense of belonging can develop across borders. The idea that acceptance derives from the superimposing of different positions emerged as a common theme in numerous political discussions. Meanwhile, the book and media industry in Frankfurt was also occupied by the question of what a forward-looking approach to intellectual property looks like.
