Interested in EU copyright and wish to discuss it in Florence? Here's the event for you

View of the EUI campus
(allegedly the one portrayed is also the villa
of Boccaccio's Decameron)
'Quo vadis' is not only the title of an epic film (adapted from a classic novel), but also a Latin phrase that means 'where are you going?'.

It is now the title of a workshop [that I have helped organizing] that has three irresistible features: 
  1. It is about EU copyright;
  2. It is going to be held in Florence;
  3. It is going to be held in Florence in late April.
Entitled 'European copyright - quo vadis?', this 2-day (28-29 April) event will be held at the European University Institute and aims to discuss the recently proposed press publishers' right (Article 11 of the Proposal for a Directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market) and the so called 'value gap' proposal (Article 13 of the same directive).

The workshop will provide a forum for discussion and exchange of opinions between policy makers and academics, as well as representatives of business and non-governmental sectors. It will consist of keynote addresses, panel presentations, and roundtable discussions alike.

Confirmed keynote speakers include - amongst others - MEP Therese Comodini-Cachia, European Parliament rapporteur on the EU Commission's copyright proposals.

Attendance to the event is free, but registration is required. Just follow this (GS Media-approved) link to register!

We're checking whether live streaming is possible - if so, I'll circulate details!
