Thursday Thunders

A Thursday thunder of events!

Copyright exceptions have been partially harmonised at the EU level. But are Member States transposing them correctly? The new Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive will impose the adoption of new exceptions. What freedom do Member States enjoy in shaping national rules? This and other questions will be addressed during the event Beauty and the Beast ... and the Memes! Copyright exceptions under EU and national laws organised by Wikimedia Movement and the Free Knowledge Advocacy Group and  presented by IPKat own Eleonora.  The event will take place at 17:00 on 3 December 2018 at The Office, rue d'Arlon 80 in Brussels: all welcome!

The use and creative reuse of audiovisual works play an increasingly crucial role in education. In this context, understanding what uses are covered by licensing schemes, such as the ERA licence, and can be enabled by copyright exceptions becomes particularly important. All of this will be discussed at the Copyright & Creative Reuse - Members' Day 2018 organised by the British Universities Film & Video Council on 7 December 2018 in London. For more information see here.  To book, click here.
