Kat in a tube
On Thursday, Advocate General Saugmandsgaard Øe will issue his much-awaited Opinion in Joined Cases YouTube, C-682/18 and Cyando, C-683/18

The issues at the centre of these important referrals - on which see at greater length here and here - revolve around the key issue of whether platforms which make available user-uploaded content perform an act of communication to the public under Article 3(1) of the InfoSoc Directive.

Other issues include:
  • The availability of the hosting safe harbour in Article 14 of the E-Commerce Directive to platforms which communicate to the public
  • Injunctions under Article 8(3) of the InfoSoc Directive
  • Damages under the Enforcement Directive
The IPKat has decided to partner once again with the British Literary and Artistic Copyright Association (BLACA) to offer a free live webinar on Thursday, 23 July 2020 at 15:00 UK time to discuss the content of the Opinion and the potential implications of these joined cases.

No comments:

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.
