The discussion in the first panel was led by Dr Maja Bogataj Jančič, who is co-chair of the Data Governance Working Group at the Global Partnership for Artificial Intelligence (GPAI).

The European Court of Justice (CJEU) has finally (almost a year since the Advocate General opinion, on which IPI already reported) issued a ruling in joined cases C-682/18 (YouTube) and C-683/18 (Cyando), concerning platform liability for copyright-infringing user uploads under Art. 3(1) InfoSoc Directive. Even though the CJEU, in its ruling, refrained from engaging with the DSM Directive’s Article 17, the judgment is still highly significant, as it comms at a time when the fundamental rights compatibility of Art. 17 DSM Directive is in question, and very few Member States have implemented the DSM Directive, including Slovenia, where the public debate ended on 28th of June, 2021.
On 15th of July Advocate General Saugmandsgaard Øe has issued an Opinion on Case C-401/19, the Polish request to annul Article 17 of the DSM directive.
