Copyright and Creation in the Internet Era - the Copyright Directive Proposal

Lunch Debate


Last September, the European Commission published its highly anticipated proposal to reform the EU copyright rules: the proposal for a directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market. With this proposal, the European Commission aimed at modernising the current EU copyright rules - and, among others, to create a well-functioning marketplace for copyright.

This lunch debate will discuss this proposal, and more specifically the measures focusing on the creation of that well-functioning marketplace for copyright: the creation of a "neighbouring" right for press publishers and the interplay between the e-Commerce directive and copyright.
