Event description
The state of the E-Union: Where do we stand with the implementation of Article 17? This webinar was held on 25th May 2021.

About this event

The EU directive on copyright in the digital single market aiming at leveraging the position of rightsholders and remunerating them for the use of their creative content online was adopted in March 2019 after intense lobbying and an up-hill battle for the creative industry. EU Member States have until the 7th of June 2021 to implement its provisions into their national laws. How good is the state of implementation? How good the prospects for visual rights holders?

We will have a special focus on Germany and on the influence of collecting management societies.

It aims to be the centre of the picture industry.

CEPIC federates approximately 600 businesses: large and smaller stock photo libraries, major photo news agencies, art galleries, museums and video companies Through its membership, CEPIC represents more than 250,000 authors in direct licensing in 20 countries across Europe.

Since its foundation CEPIC has been standing to defend the interests of picture libraries and agencies and their photographers against unfair business practice.

CEPIC’s imperative is a fair online marketplace where creators and copyright holders are recognized and fairly remunerated for their contribution in the “Value Chain”. CEPIC advocates a balanced copyright legislation adapted to the challenges of the online market place and, as one of the complainants at the EC, has been at the forefront of the battle against damaging practices of Google Images.
