Lecture on the new Article 17 of the DSM Directive
On Thursday, 1 April 2021, Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property (PIJIP) will hold an online event dedicated to Article 17 of the new EU Directive 2019/790 on copyright and related rights in the digital single market, titled: “Platform liability under Article 17 of the Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive, Automated Filtering and Fundamental Rights: An Impossible Match”. Welcome!
The event will begin at 18:00 CET and will be lead by Christophe Geiger and Bernd Justin Jütte, authors of the piece “Platform liability under Article 17 of the Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive, Automated Filtering and Fundamental Rights: An Impossible Match”.
The lecture will deal with the new liability regime of online platforms imposed by the Article 17 DSM Directive, particularly from the viewpoint of the effects that filtering obligations have on the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights and the European Convention of Human Rights. The emphasis will be put on the difficulty of achieving a fair balance between (too) restrictive obligations and respecting the users’ fundamental rights.
The event will be held via Zoom, prior registration is required.

We invite you to the fourth Open Knowledge Day and the workshop, which will take place this year within the framework of the programme and with the support of Knowledge Rights 21. The event will bring together experts from different European countries to discuss two topics: the first part will deal with the legal basis for data analytics, which is a key part of machine learning and related artificial intelligence, and the general exception for research. In the second part, open science in theory and practice will be presented both in Slovenia and in some Western Balkan countries. Representatives of research and educational institutions from Slovenia and the Western Balkan countries, as well as interested members of the public, are invited to attend.
