On 24 November, iCLIC members Sophie Stalla-Bourdillon and Eleonora Rosati hold a conference in Paris together with the University of Paris I, La Sorbonne on the topic of the role and liability of online platforms.

 

The objective of the event was to comprehend the different facets of online platforms’ activities and discuss whether a transversal or horizontal approach to the regulation of online platforms is more appropriate than sectorial approaches. Participants to the conference intensely debated the fate of the E-commerce Directive in the aftermath of new EU legislative proposals, such as the proposed Copyright Directive.

 

As a follow up to their Open Letter sent to the European Commission at the beginning of October and signed by 40 European Academics (Open Letter to the European Commission - On the Importance of Preserving the Consistency and Integrity of the EU Acquis Relating to Content Monitoring within the Information Society), Sophie and Eleonora presented an extended statement (A brief Exegesis of the Proposed Copyright Directive), in the attempt to highlight the shortfalls of the proposed Copyright Directive, while the debate in the European Parliament and the Council has just begun.
