Intellectual Property, Intermediary Liability and Online Platforms’ Regulation

CEIPI is happy to announce the opening of a new advanced training program “Intellectual Property, Intermediary Liability and Online Platforms’ Regulation”, to take place in Strasbourg from 7 to 9 December 2017.

As a lawyer, entrepreneur, or policy maker working at the forefront of Internet and technology industry, you must know whether and when access providers and communications platforms like Google, Twitter and Facebook are liable for their users’ online activities. This is one of the most relevant emerging issue for online businesses and a key factor that affects innovation and free speech.

This training program will explore legal, policy and ethical issues facing online intermediaries from a national and international perspective.  In this course, the participants will learn about novel issues of Internet jurisdiction and innovation regulation. The course will discuss the legal framework, case law and enforcement strategies dealing with intermediate liability for copyright, trademark, and privacy (right to be forgotten) infringement. Also, this course focuses on the role of Internet platforms and service providers in moderating the speech they carry for customers, including obligations and liabilities for defamation, hate and dangerous speech.

The training program will pay great attention to online platforms’ regulation within the upcoming Digital Single Market (DSM) reform package in Europe. It will expose participants to most recent caselaw from European and other international courts, while providing state-of-the-art understanding of recent and upcoming intermediary liability trends online.

This training program would gather together media, creative economies, and high-tech professionals and entrepreneurs, lawyers, policy makers, judges, and students.
