Art. 11 and 13 Draft Copyright Directive - A Practitioner's View on two aspects of the Digital Single Market Copyright Package
The draft DSM Copyright Directive contains a conglomerate of divergent regulatory topics.The idea of a neighboring right for press publishers (Art. 11) and the idea of imposing certain duties on service providers that store and provide to the public access to large amounts of works or other subject-matter uploaded by their users (Art. 13) lend themselves to be discussed in conjunction because they are often interpreted as being aimed at Google/Youtube.

How to Step on a Landmine and Walk Away Intact, or, Lessons from Copyright Reform
From EU efforts towards a single market, to the UK’s 2014 reforms, to the US Copyright Office’s target of the Next Great Copyright Act, to Canada’s own long road leading to reforms in 2012, there is a wealth of knowledge and experience to be mined regarding the legislative reform process when it comes to copyright.
