On September 9, the ReCreating Europe roundtable entitled “Centrifugal forces in EU copyright law” took place. It was chaired by Martin Kretschmer, and participants included our project coordinator Caterina Sganga, WP3 members Ula Furgal and Thomas Margoni, WP3 leader Joost Poort, and WP6 leader João Pedro Quintais. Two illustrious respondents joined the roundtable, commenting on the research insights presented by the panellists: Brando Benifei, Member of the European Parliament, and Bence Kertész, from EU Commission DG CONNECT.

The roundtable successfully managed to provide an overview of the main interim results of the project, highlighting gaps and dangers of today’s and tomorrow’s EU digital copyright scenario. ReCreating Europe’s researchers presented the innovative qualitative and quantitative research carried out in the past 20 months and the outcomes achieved by mapping and measuring the impact of the current multi-level legislative framework, with particular focus on copyright flexibilities, authors’ remuneration and bargaining power, copyright data ownership, transparency and AI technologies, and intermediaries and content moderation.
