Video recording of COMMUNIA Eurovision DSM Contest Afterparty

On December 12th, we celebrated the Eurovision DSM Contest Afterparty, reviewing the implementation of the Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive in (almost) all EU member states. For those who were unable to attend or who would like to rewatch the event, the recording is now available:

To kick off the festivities, Teresa Nobre provided a holistic overview of the DSM Directive’s implementation across the EU, highlighting a few best- (and worst) practices before eventually crowning the Eurovision DSM Contest winner.

In the second part of the event, Christina Angelopoulos provided a more targeted analysis of Articles 15 and 17, highlighting several noteworthy national implementations including some particularly unfortunate rewordings of the original text.

Finally, Felix Reda and Paul Keller came together for a virtual fireside chat, reflecting on the turbulent legislative discussions surrounding the DSM and providing an outlook for the discussions around copyright in particular when it comes to its intersection with artificial intelligence.

We are grateful to all the speakers for their contributions and to everyone who celebrated the Eurovision DSM Contest Afterparty with us. If the event has made you hungry for more information on the DSM or you are curious about the performance of your home country, head over to our Eurovision page and copyrightexceptions.eu for a detailed summary of all national implementations.
