Le marché et la création. Market and Creativity Conference (in French)

Comment concilier le marché et la création? Making Media and Images Financially Sustainable?

Alors que la directive européenne des droits d’auteur dans le marché numérique récemment adoptée établit un nouveau droit voisin pour les éditeurs de presse, cette table ronde en français abordera les différents modèles de financement des médias et des agences de presse photo à l’heure du numérique. Comment ce droit voisin va-t-il être mis en oeuvre concrètement? Comment combattre le piratage de manière efficace? Quel est le coût du contenu?

While the recently adopted Copyright Directive in the single market establishes a new neighbouring right for press publishers and press agencies, including press picture agencies, this round table will deal with the different models to finance the media, such as the  neigbouring right for press publishers and how to implement it. Other topics covered are the cost of production and the cost of piracy.

Technological Solutions for the European Copyright Directive and the Fight Against Fake News

The European Copyright Directive in the single digital market, recently voted, aims to induce revenue sharing between platforms, press publishers and news agencies as well as content creators and to offer them a better control of their productions.

Legal and Strategic Workshop with Round Tables

sponsored by the law firms Cabinet Reynalt-Perret, Cowan, DeBeats, Abrahams & Sheppard LLP, Ginger Legal and PixTrakk.

After the EU Copyright Directive

The adoption of the EU Copyright Directive raises the hope of a change in paradigm when it comes to the management of rights online. However, its adoption also raises a number of issues and challenges in terms of implementation. The round tables will assess these challenges and participants present their expectations. How will technical implementation look like? May implementation vary between EU member States? How will the various stakeholders along the value chain work together? Where are the challenges? Last but not least which legislative objectives have not been met and what is still to be done in the next coming years to reach these objectives?

The workshop will focus on the following topics:

  1. Neighbouring Rights (press publishers’ rights, publishers compensation claims, neighbouring rights in photography)
  2. Collective Management of Digital Rights
  3. Open Data and Public Domain

10.00 H: Closed workshop: Led by moderators, specialised lawyers and interested professionals will discuss and work out strategies for the future 

11.30 H: Public session: The results of the Round Tables are presented at the end of the sessions in a synthesised form to all groups and to the CEPIC audience in Salle Carlades.

This is a public session open to CEPIC delegates with presentations by Eleonora Rosati and Valérie Laure Bénabou, followed by a Q&A.

Participation in the closed workshop is on invitation of CEPIC. More than 30 international and French legal and copyright professionals have registered for this workshop. Their names are available in the list of participants. More
