On March 26th the European Parliament approved the Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive. This Directive, which includes the controversial Article 11 regulating linking to news articles and Article 13 regulating platform liability for infringement, will soon move to individual member countries for implementation. Decisions made by member countries regarding Directive implementation may shape the future evolution of the internet and online platforms.

Giuseppe Mazziotti will discuss the provisions contained in the Directive, as well as provide critical context on the forces that lead to this legislative change.

Giuseppe is EU Fulbright Schuman Scholar 2018/2019 and Emile Noël Global Fellow 2018/2019 at the Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law and Justice, New York University. He is Assistant Professor in intellectual property law at Trinity College Dublin and Associate Research Fellow at the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) in Brussels.
