On Tuesday, June 18th, 15:00-16:00 CEST, we are hosting an online salon on the hollowing out of the Public Domain through cultural heritage laws with a particular focus on Italy.

In recent years, we have witnessed a number of problematic court cases around the commercial reuse of Public Domain works held by Italian cultural heritage institutions. COMMUNIA has recently published an independent expert opinion by scholars Giulia Dore and Giulia Priora, raising questions about the compatibility of the Italian approach of cultural heritage protection with EU law, including Art. 14 of the CDSM Directive. The researchers will discuss their findings with a panel of experts before we open up the event to questions from the audience during a Q&A session.



The salon is open to anyone upon registration. Please register using this Google Form and we will send you a Zoom link before the event.
