Three years after its adoption, the discussion of and around the Directive on copyright and related rights in the Digital Single Market 2019/790 (‘DSM Directive’) is anything but exhausted. The fate of one its key provisions – Article 17 – is still unknown due to the pending judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union (‘CJEU’) in Poland v Council and Parliament, C-401/19. A significant number of EU Member States is yet to complete the national transposition process, despite the deadline of 7 June 2021. In all this, existing national transpositions already show significant divergences in the Member States’ approaches to the implementation of the Directive. The Institute for Intellectual Property and Market Law (IFIM) at Stockholm University is proud and delighted to announce its new, in-person event, which will be held in English at Stockholm University on Thursday, 2 June 2022 on the topic of: ‘The DSM Directive 3 years on: The Polish challenge to Article 17 and the national transposition maze’. IFIM is honoured to announce that the keynote address will be delivered by Henrik Saugmandsgaard Øe, appointed Advocate General in C-401/19 and author of an impactful Opinion in that case.
