COMMUNIA Salon 2: Protecting freedom of expression via the pastiche exception
You are welcome to attend the second Communia Salon of 2020 “Protecting freedom of expression via the pastiche exception” on Thursday 18 June from 15:30 to 17:00.
Exactly one month after a successful first online Salon on implementation status of the new EU Directive 2019/790 on Copyright and related rights on the Digital Single Market, Communia will hold a second one, intended to shed light on Article 17 and mandatory copyright exceptions and limitations contained therein.
The event will host three speakers: Teresa Nobre will discuss the importance of flexibility of copyright exceptions, Paul Keller will present the tension between filtering obligations and the obligation to safeguard users rights in the context of Article 17, and prof. Martin Senftleben will delve into the role of pastiche exception. At the end, an informal question and answer session will follow.
The Salon will be conducted via the Zoom platform. You can register beforehand here. Welcome!

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.
