Following up the Juncker's Commission priority to open up access to
content as part of its strategy to achieve a dynamic Digital Single
Market (DSM), the revision of the copyright directive 2001/29/EC has
been crucial to the promotion of cultural diversity, creativity and
innovation as well as to the access to knowledge and information. Ahead
of the Commission's ambitious plan to modernize the EU copyright
framework, the European Parliament presented in July 2015 the report
'Implementation of Directive 2001/29/EC on the harmonisation of certain
aspects of copyright and related rights in the information society'. The
report highlighted the need to update legislation on current practices
in order to smooth the path for an exchange of knowledge and culture
across borders, facilitated by the digital revolution.

In light of this reality, the European Commission adopted in December
2015 an action plan built on four pillars: aiming at widening online
access to content across the EU, adapting exceptions to copyright rules
for an innovative and inclusive society, creating a fairer marketplace
as well as fighting piracy. Within this framework, the first step has
been to unveil a legislative proposal on cross-border portability
allowing EU residents to travel with the digital content they have
purchased or subscribed to at home and is expected to become reality in
2017. However, whilst progress is being made, with over 16 additional
initiatives to be presented before the end of the year, a lot still
needs to be done to ensure an effective single market in the area of
copyright and strike the right balance between the protection of right
holders and facilitating access to digital services across EU borders
for citizens and businesses.

This timely international symposium will provide an invaluable
opportunity for key stakeholders within the public and private sector to
discuss the future copyright reforms within the proposed action plan as
well as to explore the measures to provide a balance between creators
and consumers, understand the new proposal reforms on Copyright, its
legal aspects, as well as its benefits and flaws in order to move
towards a borderless EU digital single market, with access to content
guaranteed across all Member States. The symposium will support the
exchange of ideas and encourage delegates to engage in thought-provoking
topical debate with local and regional practitioners and policy makers
at EU level.

Delegates will:

    * Discuss the copyright reform proposals and ongoing initiatives
    * Analyse the crucial issues related to the enforcement of copyright
      law across Europe
    * Discuss the right balance between protecting producers rights and
      guaranteeing access to consumers
    * Rethink EU copyright rules to better promote innovation and a more
      inclusive European societ
