What You Need To Know About
The European Copyright Directive

21 May 2019, 12 p.m. EDT / 18:00 CEST 

After four years of hearings, lobbying and negotiations (as well as demonstrations, both pro- and anti-, in the streets of some cities), the European Union has enacted a Directive to modernize copyright laws across its 28 Member States. The move is a significant step toward achieving a Digital Single Market across the Continent.

The 2019 Copyright Directive covers critical business activities, including text mining, online re-use and re-publication, and increased responsibility regarding infringements on the part of social media platforms.

On Tuesday, 21 May, Copyright Clearance Center is pleased to host a special complimentary webinar analyzing what the new Directive – and the possible variations that may be introduced in individual countries in the process of national implementation over the next two years – may mean for your organization.

Moderator Mark Seeley and his guests, European copyright expert Carlo Scollo Lavizzari and Jessica Sänger of the German Publishers and Booksellers Association (the Börsenverein), will review the key components of the legislation and answer your questions.
