The goal of "better regulation" obliges the EU to base its actions on evidence and a full understanding of the impacts. To apply these principles to the ongoing legislative initiatives on copyright and related policy fields, academic experts are visiting the Parliament for a fact-based debate curated by the Institute for Law and the Web (ILAWS), University of Southampton, UK.
Keynote by Commissioner Mariya Gabriel.
• News aggregators vs. press publishers
What about rights for publishers of press publication?
• Online platforms vs. rightsholders
What about the "value gap" rhetoric and remedy?
• Data access vs. ownership
What about a text and data mining exception and a data producer right?
Panelists will include copyright rapporteur MEP Axel Voss, representatives from the Commission and the Estonian Presidency, as well as academics selected by ILAWS.
