THE CEPIC LEGAL WEBINAR IS A PUBLIC EVENT OPEN TO CEPIC MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS.
NON-MEMBERS CAN JOIN THE WEBINAR FOR A SMALL FEE (30 €).
With less than a month before our first follow-up Legal Webinar we hope that you have registered and made the space in your diary. There are limited places and these are being taken up quickly. If you haven’t already booked, we suggest you REGISTER NOW!
This first session will focus on the national implementation of Articles 15 and 17 of the EU Copyright Directive, passed in June 2019. Questions to be examined include (but are not limited to):
- where do we stand on implementation?
- how much divergence is there from the original text?
- what are the consequences for rightholders?
- have negotiations started with online platforms as to which technology will be used or is available?
- what will change for rightholders distributing their content online and what will not change?
- will photographers and picture agencies benefit from the new revenue stream?
The Legal Webinar takes place on 10 September from 16.00 to 17.30 CET. The session will start promptly at 16.00 CET, but the room will be open 15 minutes before and after the session, in order to allow participants some virtual networking time. Participation in CEPIC’s first public webinar is free of charge for CEPIC members and delegates of the CEPIC Congress 2020 (postponed to 2021) who have paid registrations. Non-member fee: €30.
All CEPIC members and affiliates please make certain your membership is up to date to be sure of getting your free registration. Capacity is limited to 80 places so sign up early to reserve your place. We look forward to hearing your questions on this topic at this important and very relevant event.
