EU - Webinar:The new Copyright Directive

This webinar provides you with a basic description and explanation of the copyright changes introduced by the new Directive 2019/790 on copyright and related rights in the Digital Single Market.

In 2019, the European Parliament adopted the Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive, giving member states until June 2021 to enact new national laws reflecting its provisions. The Copyright Directive has been highly controversial, mainly due to well-founded concerns that it will undermine the free expression of individual internet users who risk having content they try to publish blocked by companies who fear falling foul of the new copyright laws.
