The Internet: before and after Upload Filter
October 6, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EEST
Internet is freedom. But it seems that won’t last for long. The European Commission is planning to limit the freedom of speech by implementing automated upload filters for all content. What does this mean for Internet users and online platforms? How will the Internet look like in 2020 if this law gets adopted? What’s at stake for the Romanian digital business market? RSVP here to save your front row place on October 6, starting 2:00 PM and find out more!
About the event
The new copyright law includes in Article 13 requirements that all sites and platforms where users generate content (Reddit, Tumblr, Github, etc) must build censorship algorithms that monitor and block your content if it looks like it infringes copyright. The plan also includes unprecedented new powers for media giants to charge fees for linking to their content.
This event is the first of a series of two. While this round table discussion is dedicated for tech companies and Internet users, the second event on October 13 will present you ApTI’s copyright reform video campaign.
In September, ApTI launched a video campaign expressing different views on the copyright reform proposal and its implications. They are gradually releasing their 10 video series and you can find more information on the campaign website.
The speakers invited are Christian China Birta (Kooperativa 2.0), Andrei Radu (CEO E-Commerce Awards Gala & Co-Founder TRUSTED.ro) and other entrepreneurs, tech professionals, online platforms, experts in EU policy and active digital citizens to debate Article 13 of the proposal for a copyright directive.
14:00 – 14:15 Welcome
14:15 – 15:45 Valentina Pavel -> Presentation on the proposed copyright reform
