Filtered Futures: Filtering Fundamental Rights?

Communia and Gesellschaft für Freiheitsrecht are organising Filtered Futures, the conference on constraints that upload filters place on fundamental rights, after the CJEU ruling on Article 17 of the Copyright Directive. The event will take place on September 19th, 2022, at Robert-Bosch-Stiftung in Berlin.

The CJEU decision on Article 17 raises a number of important questions for the enforcement of copyright law and the compatibility of upload filters with fundamental rights even beyond copyright law. At the Filtered Futures conference, we will discuss these consequences with leading academics and key stakeholders. A preliminary conference programme is available here, and a more detailed version of the programme will follow in early September.

Registrations for attending the conference in person are now open. Participation is free of charge and a light lunch will be served. Please consider that participation is limited and that registrations will be considered on a first come, first serve basis.
