On Wednesday 12th September, the European Parliament adopted its position on the proposed Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive.
Rightholders’ representatives invite you to hear and debate what is at stake regarding the proposed “illustration for teaching” exception in Article 4 of the Directive, in view of the upcoming inter-institutional discussions.
Representatives of the European institutions, as well as John DEGEN, Executive Director of the Writers Union of Canada, together with authors, teachers and publishers will discuss the importance of a balanced copyright system in fostering sustainable, innovative, diverse and high quality content, crucial for the whole educational ecosystem.
A detailed agenda will be available soon.
