COMMUNIA Salon: Copyright in the DSM Directive – one year after
You are welcome to attend the “Copyright in the DSM Directive – one year after” event, organised by Communia, on Monday 18 May 2020 from 15:30 to 17:00.
Exactly one year after the Directive EU 2019/790 on Copyright and related rights on the Digital Single Market entered into effect, Communia will hold an online event (salon), providing updates and insights into the implementation status in EU Member States and in the discussions at the European Commission’s stakeholder dialogue.
The event will host four speakers: Teresa Nobre (COMMUNIA) will provide an overview of the implementation status in the different member states, Ula Furgal (CREATe) will discuss the new publishers’ right in Article 15, Paul Keller (COMMUNIA) will provide an overview of the discussions surrounding the implementation of Article 17, and Julia Reda (GFF /control ©) will talk about the role of litigation in ensuring a fundamental rights-preserving implementation of the new Directive. At the end, informal question and answer session will follow.
The Salon will be conducted via the Zoom platform. You can register beforehand here (link).

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.
