Communia organised the next edition of our virtual COMMUNIA Salons. This time discussions returned to the German implementation proposal for Article 17 of the DSM directive: On the 3rd of February the German government formally adopted its implementation proposal, headed for a first reading in the German parliament (Bundestag) later the same month. The Salon examined how the proposal differs from the original implementation proposal which was discussed in July of last year, and what we can learn from the German approach to implementing Article 17.
For this edition of the COMMUNIA Salon we were joined by Dr. Martin Bittner and Dr. Thomas Ewert of the German Ministry for Justice and Consumer Protection (BMJV) presenting the implementation proposal. We also had reactions from Felix Reda (Project lead control © at GFF and former MEP), Marco Pancini (Youtube) and (Xavier Blanc (AEPO-ARTIS). The presentations were followed by an informal question and answer session and concluding remarks by Paul Keller (COMMUNIA/Open Future). The Salon was moderated by Teresa Nobre.
