Session Name: Tech Conference 2019: Is 13 an Unlucky Number? Effects of the EU Copyright Directive
MeetingType: Special Event
Date: 01/16/19
Description: The European Union is likely to enact a new Directive that could require certain types of online services to take proactive steps to license copyrighted material or keep it off their services. It will take years to figure out what types of technologies or enforcement schemes may be acceptable or required under the laws as implemented in EU Member States. Regardless, just as the EU GDPR had implications for website terms of use worldwide, the new EU Directive could have a big ripple effect on online services’ copyright responsibilities in the U.S. and beyond. We’ll discuss the Directive and get a head start on predicting its implications.
