Fundamental right to information: Our future?

Sylvain Justier - Magenta Law Firm 

Florence Gaullier - Vercken and Gaullier Law Firm

Moderated by Christophe Dickés - VP, FIBEP | Global Copyright Director, Kantar Europe

In the professional Spanish newsletter El Confidential (September 2020), Raquel Xaklabarder Plantada, professor in Intellectual property in Spain wrote: “Aggregation services and search engines play a fundamental role in citizens' access to information. However, knowing that any exclusive right (the power to authorize and prohibit) tends to maximize profit, the granting of exclusive licenses to certain platforms or services (and the prohibition of others) does not seem an unlikely scenario, with the consequent impact that this would have on the fundamental right to information.” Actually, the crisis that we are going through leads publishers to be more demanding in terms of price, which raises the central question: are we in a commercial relationship or simply in a legal relationship of copyright payment? To help us to face this challenge, Sylvain Justier from Magenta law firm will present the legal study he made on exclusive deals and right to access to the news for FIBEP members. In a second part, Florence Gaullier (Vercken and Gaullier law firm) will present the issue of the analysis: while the EU copyright directive will be transposed before June in 2021, do we have to pay copyright when we provide analysis services?
