Playlists: 'osc18' videos starting here / audio / related events

The current EU Copyright Reform proposal puts pressure on platforms to monitor and filter all content, including uploaded free and open-source software, for copyright infringement (Article 13), proposes a new 20-year license for news snippets (Article 11), and limits who can access datasets -- including open data (Article 3). Any of these would be terrible outcomes. Let's demand better copyright reform!

In this session, we will tackle the following questions:
- What's happening with the EU Copyright Reform?
- How will Articles 11, 13 + 3 affect the Internet experience in Europe?
- How will the proposed reform affect the FLOSS ecosystem in Europe? The rest of the world?
- Why is this happening?
- What are key organizations doing about it, and what can you do about it?

Note: The EU Copyright Reform restrictions can also be applied to non-EU citizens, therefore everybody regardless of citizenship is encouraged to participate in the session.
