Copyright in the EU: The Role and Influence of the European Court of Justice
Eric Schwartz will be presenting, "Copyright in the EU: The Role and Influence of the European Court of Justice," at the Copyright Society of the USA (CSUSA) Midwinter Meeting on February 9, 2017, in Napa, CA.
About the Program:
The European Court of Justice (ECJ) is the highest court in the European Union, charged with interpreting matters of EU law and ensuring its equal application across all EU member states. In recent years, the ECJ has had a growing influence on the evolution of copyright law in Europe, with often controversial decisions on fundamental matters under the EU Copyright Directive. Join Silke von Lewinski, one of the world's leading experts on international copyright law, in conversation with CSUSA Past President Eric Schwartz, as they review key developments from the ECJ and weigh their influence on copyright law in the EU and beyond.
