The Digital Single Market (DSM) strategy the EU Commission announced in May 2015 is about to spread its wings. 2016 saw it grow remarkably with legislative initiatives being pushed forward at various ends including the ban on geo-blocking, portability of online content (the so-called “Connectivity Package“), the “Copyright Package,” and most recently, the Commission published its ideas for a “European Data Economy“.
One would think that this digital reform was challenging enough but the path towards a true digital market within Europe has become even steeper due to political developments we have seen over the last twelve months. Brexit, the popular vote in Italy, the change in administration in the U.S., and the change at Commissioner’s level, will all impact the DSM.
Join us on Tuesday 7 February at 3.00pm (CET) for a webinar where we will put into perspective the EU Commissions’ endeavors to create a single electronic business area of free commerce, communication and data exchange, focussing on the anticipated changes for service providers and online platforms. Topics will include:
- Political landscape for 2017 (Peter Watts, London)
- European Data Economy (Winston Maxwell, Paris)
- Competition law aspects of the accumulation of and access to data (Dina Jubrail, Brussels)
- Broadcasting and access to digital content (Nils Rauer, Frankfurt)
- Tax implications for platforms (Mathias Schönhaus, Düsseldorf)
We hope you can join us.
