WS 6: Copyright – Implementation of the EU directive

Rapporteur: Nataša Perućica, Geneva Internet Platform

  • Copyright can contribute to negative trends such as surveillance and control on the internet. There is therefore the need to combat such a practice and the idea that machines can govern what we can see or read on the internet.
  • On copyright infringement: Whereas filters are designed to identify matches between different sources, they are not designed to recognise context.
  • Content control requires supervision to make sure that the impact on different stakeholders is proportionate. An institutional mediator needs to be established or an existing actor should be given legitimacy to deal with content control.
