Communia Salon on ex-ante user rights safeguards in Art 17 DSM Directive

After Communia successfully organised four online Salons discussing the new EU Directive on copyright and related rights in digital single market in 2020, it continues with the good practice in 2021 as well, and will organise the fifth Communia Salon on the role of ex-ante user rights safeguards in implementing Article 17 on 26 January. Welcome!

At the Salon, the discussion will revolve around the controversial Art 17 DSM Directive and especially about the need for the implementation of ex-ante user rights safeguards that would prevent legitimate uploads from being automatically blocked.

The Salon will host Julia Reda (former MEP and project lead at GFF), Viveca Still (Senior Copyright Advisor, Ministry of Culture, Finland), Marco Giorello (Head of Copyright Unit, European Commission) and Tobias Holzmüller (General Counsel, GEMA). The Salon will be moderated by Alek Tarkowski (COMMUNIA/Open Future), after the individual presentations, an informal question and answer session, led by Paul Keller (COMMUNIA/Open Future) will follow.

The event will take place on 26 January 2021 from 15:30 and 17:00 on Zoom, prior registration is required, you can register here. Welcome!
