> Gretchen Jansen at the ITM

A warm welcome for Gretchen Jansen

The ITM is very pleased to announce that Ms Gretchen Jansen will be a visiting scholar at the Institute for the next three months. She is currently a lecturer and PhD student at the University of Stellenbosch (South Africa). She is also a member of the Anton Mostert Chair in Intellectual Property Law in South Africa. Her research and teaching interests include intellectual property law in the digital environment, copyright law and performers’ rights. Ms Jansen’s doctoral research examines the rights of performers, in particular the rights to music royalties in online streaming and radio plays. Ms Jansen is also the South African coordinator of the Stellenbosch Art Law Clinic, which was founded by Prof Hoeren in 2021.

During her visit to ITM, Ms Jansen would like to research aspects of copyright and artist protection in Germany and further develop the Stellenbosch Art Law Clinic project.

We look forward to the interesting exchange and wish Ms Jansen all the best for her time in Münster and at the ITM.
