EuroISPA to participate to stakeholder dialogue on Article 17 of the Copyright Directive
Brussels, 8 October 2019: EuroISPA has been selected as a member of the European Commission’s stakeholder dialogue under Article 17 of the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market.
The dialogue, which follows an unprecedented controversial discussion last year will gather a wide range of stakeholders to discuss possible practical solutions for the implementation of Article 17 of the Directive, with a focus on cooperation between online content-sharing service providers and rightsowners. The discussions will feed into the European Commission’s guidelines for the application of Article 17.
Innocenzo Genna, EuroISPA’s Chair of Innovation and Growth, said: “We are honoured to participate in the stakeholder dialogue under Article 17 of the Copyright Directive. EuroISPA has always demonstrated its willingness to work towards a solution in line with the expectations of the market and the rights of European citizens”.
