Event Details

The past year alone has been one of intense activity for EU copyright: the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has issued several copyright decisions and touched upon a number of topical issues, spanning from jurisdiction in online infringement cases to hyperlinking, from blocking injunctions to the notion of parody; the Commission has been busy consulting with interested stakeholders about possible reform interventions, while two draft key documents (the Impact Assessment
and White Paper
) have been leaked; the EU legislative has adopted a new directive on collective rights management.

This seminar will provide an opportunity to both discuss the above in detail, including the practical impact of EU developments on copyright law and policy, and highlight what issues might be addressed in the near future at the judicial, policy and legislative levels.  

Topics will include:

  • CJEU case law from the past year, including Case C-170/12 Pinckney, Case C-355/12 Nintendo, Case C-466/12 Svensson, Case C-351/12 OSA, Case C-314/12 TelekabelCase C-435/12 ACI Adam, Case C-360/13 PRCACase C-201/13 Deckmyn [the latter will be discussed in great detail by Allen & Overy's chairman of the Global IP Group Geert Glas], Case C-117/13 Ulmer.
  • Impact of CJEU case law on national copyright laws, with a special focus on exceptions and limitations.
  • Policy activity of the EU Commission, including the Public Consultation and the relevant Responses, and the leaked draft Impact Assessment and White Paper.
  • Directive 2014/26/EU and the future of collective rights management.
  • What to expect next, especially at the CJEU and Commission levels. 

Places are limited (with some tickets available for full-time students) so to provide everybody with the opportunity to discuss fully the present and future of EU copyright law and policy.
