When: 02.03.2022
Where: Online

In this COMMUNIA Salon, we explored the future of the sui generis database right and how this right should evolve in the context of the proposed Data Act. For this edition we were joined among others by Krzysztof Nichczynski (DG Connect, European Commission) who presented the European Commission’s rationale for the Data Act, Martin Husovec (Assistant Professor of Law at LSE) who elaborated on the legal context and Felix Reda (former MEP & Project Lead control © at GFF) who discussed an ongoing German lawsuit in which open data activists are facing government prosecution for allegedly infringing the sui generis database right.
