Communia Salon: Article 17: Unpacking the AG Opinion in case C-401/19

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. Since the opinion provides an important clarification on user rights safeguards, COMMUNIA is organising a special lunch edition of COMMUNIA salon, on Wednesday, the 21st of July at 1300, on which these clarifications will be analysed.

AG Saugmandsgaard Øe in his opinion advises the Court to reject the annulment request, as he finds that Article 17 is compatible with the freedom of expression and information guaranteed in Article 11 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.

The Salon will host Paul Keller (COMMUNIA/Open Future), Julia Reda (Project Lead © Control at GFF and former MEP) and Martin Husovec (Assistant Professor of Law at LSE), and The Salon will be moderated by Teresa Nobre (COMMUNIA).

The Salon will take place on the 21th of July from 13:00 to 14:15 on Zoom, prior registration is required. You can register here.
