Digital Regulation Podcasts - Episode 3: EU Copyright Directive



United Kingdom, United States

The internet has grown and developed tremendously over the past 20 years. Such growth is partly due to legislation affording online intermediaries - both in Europe and in the US - protection from copyright infringement as long as they follow a certain protocol to remove infringing material once notified.

In this brave new world of online platforms and user generated content, current legislation has left copyright owners with little protection and recourse to protect and monetize their IP and this is precisely what the EU has attempted to regulate with its new Copyright Directive.

Despite its well-meaning intentions, the European Copyright Directive is not without its challenges and was one of the most controversial piece of legislation adopted by the European Union recently. In this new episode, Ane Kallmyr Lerheim and I will tell you all you need to know about the EU Copyright Directive, whether you are caught by it and how to prepare for its implementation.
