The DSM Directive and Beyond: Implementation, Effects and Broader Related Issues


2.12.2022 at 9.15 - 15.45
The Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market (DSM Directive) 2019/790 affects in multiple ways not only the enforcement of copyright on the internet, but also more broadly the rights of users of on-line distribution platforms, text and data mining, algorithmic filtering of on-line expression, and the activities of collective management organizations (CMOs) and on-line actors like YouTube, Vimeo and TikTok. The seminar will focus on the implementations, effects and problems of the DSM Directive. It will also look at background questions, as well as issues related to future legislation like the Digital Services Act. It brings together some of the leading academics on these topics to discuss these topical themes.

You can participant on-line by Zoom too. A link will be sent to all participants closer to the event.
