5th Stakeholder Dialogue on the Implementation of Article 17 of the Copyright Directive
16 January 2020
IFLA will be represented by Stephen Wyber, Manager, Policy and Advocacy
A key part of the follow up to the Copyright Directive on which IFLA worked alongside partner organisations is a set of dialogues among rightholders, internet platforms and user groups in order to work out how to implement the controversial provisions around user-uploaded content.
IFLA is participating in these on behalf of the library field, working to underline the need both to maintain the exclusion of educational and scientific repositories from any new rules, and more broadly to defend the interests of library users.
