In the context of our cross-disciplinary and transnational research activities, we are glad to invite you to our next web conference on the process of implementation of the CDSM Directive.

The conference will feature two keynote speakers, Professor Raquel Xalabarder (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya) and the First Advocate General Maciej Szpunar (Court of Justice of the EU), two presentations of CDSMD implementation trackers, and four thematic panels. Each panel will be devoted to a topic that is touched by the Directive and has been subject to ReCreating Europe’s research (exceptions and limitations, authors’ remunerations and reversion right, automated content-filtering, preservation of cultural heritage). The presentation of our interim results will be commented upon by respondents representing stakeholders, policymakers, legal experts and the civil society. We look forward to your participation in the discussion!
