|What do you do on a second date?|
This seminar has limited places available so to provide everybody with the opportunity to discuss fully the present and future of EU copyright at the judicial, policy and legislative levels.
There are no longer tickets available for 24 September. The good news is that I have decided to have a second date besides the one originally planned. There will be in fact another Fabulous World of EU Copyright on 23 September, still kindly hosted by RPC and still from 2 to 5 pm.
You may register here!
And this is the description of the event as it appears on the event page:
The past year alone has been one of intense activity for EU copyright: the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has issued several copyright decisions and touched upon a number of topical issues, spanning from jurisdiction in online infringement cases to hyperlinking, from blocking injunctions to the notion of parody; the Commission has been busy consulting with interested stakeholders about possible reform interventions, while two draft key documents (the Impact Assessment and White Paper) have been leaked; the EU legislative has adopted a new directive on collective rights management.
|You have some copyright fun, of course!|
This seminar will provide an opportunity to both discuss the above in detail, including the practical impact of EU developments on UK copyright, and highlight what issues might be addressed in the near future at the judicial, policy and legislative levels.
Topics will include:
- CJEU case law from the past year, including Case C-170/12 Pinckney, Case C-355/12 Nintendo, Case C-466/12 Svensson, Case C-351/12 OSA, Case C-314/12 Telekabel, Case C-435/12 ACI Adam, Case C-360/13 Meltwater, Case C-201/13 Deckmyn [to be decided TOMORROW!].
- Impact of CJEU case law on UK copyright, eg with regard to the new parody exception.
- Policy activity of the EU Commission, including the Public Consultation and the relevant Responses, and the leaked draft Impact Assessment and White Paper.
- Directive 2014/26/EU and the future of collective rights management.
- What to expect next, especially at the CJEU and Commission levels.
Places are limited also this time (with some tickets available for full time students) so to provide everybody with the opportunity to discuss fully the present and future of EU copyright law and policy.
