Wish to discuss GS Media and linking?

Well, who could possibly reply 'no' to such a question?!?

If you are in London in the evening of Tuesday, 28 March, then you may want to attend the new event organised by TIPLO (The Intellectual Property Lawyers Organisation), to which I have also been kindly invited to speak.

Entitled 'Linking after GS Media: clear (and happy) at last?', this meeting consists of a convivial dinner in the beautiful premises of Middle Temple (The Princes' Room to be more precise), followed by a discussion of the issues addressed (and raised) by everybody's favourite court, ie the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), in its seminal decision in GS Media, C-160/15.

In that case the CJEU tackled the issue of linking to unlicensed copyright content, and determined what the relevant legal treatment should be.

Yet, the ruling raises several questions:
  • How did the CJEU reach that decision?
  • Where are we after GS Media: is the relevant legal framework on linking any clearer now?
  • Profit-making intention: what is it all about?
  • Who is likely to be most at risk in the post-GS Media world?
