WHAT WE HAVE PLANNED FOR THE International Copyright Law Conference

Let's talk about the DSM...

Following the European Commission’s proposed legislative shakeup that aims to achieve modern copyright rules fit for the digital age, the Digital Single Market (DSM) Regulation on cross-border portability and the Directive on copyright law remain at the forefront of everyone’s minds. Don’t miss the opportunity to delve into the big issues such as the application of national copyright rules, where we are with the Directive and what areas remain controversial.

News from the US

Back by popular demand David Carson, Former General Counsel at the US Copyright Office will deliver a session looking at the effects of recent legislative and political change on US Copyright. This will include the assessment of the latest caselaw, including the Supreme Court case of Star Athletica v. Varsity Brands, the case law on fair use, Fox Television Stations v. Aereokiller and address copyright under the Trump administration.    

Voice your opinion on text data mining

While most agree that EU law needs to be updated and adapted to meet the demands of the digital age, Article 3 of the Copyright Directive, that covers Text and Data Mining, has sparked a hotly contested debate. Branded by some as progressive and others as draconian join the conversation and hear our panel debate the issues around current consequences and the proposed exemptions.
