Interested in EU copyright and wish to discuss it in Florence? Here's the event for you

Copyright + Florence =
As previously reported on The IPKat, there is an event that is taking place next month and will be of interest to 1709 Blog readers. 

Entitled 'European copyright - quo vadis?', this 2-day conference [that I have helped organising] 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 (28 and 29 April).
More specifically, the conference will be held at the European University Institute and will 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 event 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 proposal, and Giuseppe Abbamonte, the Director of the Media and Data Directorate at DG for Communications, Networks, Content and Technology within the European Commission.

The draft programme is available here.

Attendance to the event is free, but registration is required. Just click on this link for more information and to register!
