Better Regulation for Copyright - Academics Meet Policy Makers

 

The goal of "better regulation" obliges the EU to base its actions on evidence and a full understanding of the impacts. To apply these principles to the ongoing legislative initiatives on copyright and related policy fields, academic experts are visiting the Parliament for a fact-based debate curated by the Institute for Law and the Web (ILAWS), University of Southampton, UK.

Keynote by Commissioner Mariya Gabriel.

Panel debates:

• News aggregators vs. press publishers
  What about rights for publishers of press publication? 

• Online platforms vs. rightsholders
  What about the "value gap" rhetoric and remedy? 

• Data access vs. ownership
  What about a text and data mining exception and a data producer right? 

 

Panelists will include copyright rapporteur MEP Axel Voss, representatives from the Commission and the Estonian Presidency, as well as academics selected by ILAWS.
