CIPPM’s online events
Center for Intellectual Property Policy and Management (CIPPM), established under the auspices of University of Bournemouth, will hold several online events in the following weeks, including events relating to the implementation of the new Directive 2019/790 on copyright and related rights in the Digital Single Market (DSM Directive).
On Wednesday, 18 November CIPPM will, in collaboration with the EnDOW Community, organise an online event titled “Unlocking Orphan Films”, aimed at film lovers and at spreading the knowledge about orphan works. Attendance of the event is free of charge, but a prior registration is required. You can register here.
Exactly two weeks later, on 2 December CIPPM’s Observatory on transposition of Exceptions and Limitations, which was launched with the purpose of keeping an eye on implementation of the copyright exceptions and limitations within the DSM Directive, will hold a webinar on the DSM Directive implementation. The event will be a live workshop dealing especially with the Text and Data Mining exceptions (Articles 3 and 4) and the exception for Digital and Cross-border Teaching activities (Article 5). At the workshop, the implementation update for Slovenia will be presented by dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič. The workshop will be held via Zoom.

The DSM Directive entered into force in June 2019 and the deadline for implementation expired on 7 June 2021. On 23 June 2021, the Commission launched multiple infringement procedures and sent letters of formal notice to Slovenia and 22 other Member States that had failed to notify it of the full transposition of the Directive. Slovenia remains among the 14 Member States against which the Commission is continuing the infringement procedure. On 19 May 2022, the Commission sent reasoned opinions to Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Denmark, Greece, France, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Slovakia, Finland and Sweden.
