'Quo vadis' is not only the title of an epic film (adapted from a classic novel), but also a Latin phrase that means 'where are you going?'.

It is now the title of a workshop [that I have helped organizing] that has three irresistible features: 
  1. It is about EU copyright;
  2. It is going to be held in Florence;
  3. It is going to be held in Florence in late April.
Entitled 'European copyright - quo vadis?', this 2-day (28-29 April) event will be held at the European University Institute and aims to discuss the recently proposed press publishers' right (Article 11 of the Proposal for a Directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market) and the so called 'value gap' proposal (Article 13 of the same directive).

The workshop will provide a forum for discussion and exchange of opinions between policy makers and academics, as well as representatives of business and non-governmental sectors. It will consist of keynote addresses, panel presentations, and roundtable discussions alike.

Confirmed keynote speakers include - amongst others - MEP Therese Comodini-Cachia, European Parliament rapporteur on the EU Commission's copyright proposals.

Attendance to the event is free, but registration is required. Just follow this (GS Media-approved) link to register!

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.
