Dreams are my reality: a new EU copyright event

EU copyright in a nutshell: Option 1
In May 2015 the EU Commission issued its Digital Single Market Strategy (DSMS) [here and here], in which it announced plans to reform EU copyright. 

In particular, the Commission indicated that a review of the copyright rules could encompass content portability and geoblocking; exceptions and limitations; and online enforcement.

The DSMS was followed by the launch of public consultations on the review of the Satellite and Cable Directive, and the role and responsibilities of online intermediaries and platforms.

As reported by this blog, yesterday the Commission:
  1. issued a proposal for a regulation on the cross-border portability of online content services in the internal market;
  2. released a new Communication Towards a modern, more European copyright framework, in which it anticipated that policy and legislative action would be taken in respect of: (a) exceptions and limitations; (b) exclusive rights (including both clarifying issues facing linking and considering whether any action specific to news aggregators is needed); and (c) enforcement (including Follow the Money strategies, commercial-scale infringements, application of provisional and precautionary measures, and injunctions and their cross-border effect);
  3. launched a public consultation on the evaluation and modernisation of the legal framework for the enforcement of intellectual property rights.
EU copyright in a nutshell: Option 2
In parallel to this, also the EU judiciary has been having a significant impact on shaping copyright rules, with judgments that promise to have a profound impact on exclusive rights (including linking and the right of communication to the public) and exceptions and limitations alike.

On 14th January 2016 I am organising a new event, to be held at the London offices of RPC to review and discuss all these recent developments, including the feasibility (and desirability as such) of proposed Commission action.

Places are limited (with some tickets available for full time students), to provide everybody with the opportunity to discuss fully the present and future of EU copyright.

For those who cannot attend in person, it will be also possible to follow the event in either live streaming or at a later time via YouTube.

CDP points are also available.

  1. I don't know about anybody else but is this really the best that they can do? If it is then I wonder why anyone can possibly think that there is anything wrong with the current system of copyright protection.



All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
