Abstract

The 2015/2016 EU political season has brought about a new data protection regulation, new rules on net neutrality and an interesting recommendation to remove the IP protection of databases that exists only in Europe.

What it is yet to deliver is the big one - a copyright reform proposal that is expected to be published by the European Commission in July.

This talk wants to take the opportunity to make sure everyone interested in EU policy is on the same page as well as to prep&hype WEASELs for the copyright battles to come.

The structure is along the lines cited int he title:

  • What happened
  • What do we expect to happen next
  • How can you help

NB: Together with Communia we are also submitting a copyright workshop, where activists are trained how to work on EU public policy efforts and more specifically the planned copyright campaign.
