This virtual event will seek answers to questions concerning the place of creators in Europe's immediate future.
The lives of creators have become ever more entwined with the doings of tech giants. This event will explore how that relationship has evolved and what needs to be done in order to ensure a fair and balanced future.
The two panel discussions will address how these three parties can work together to ensure the success of Article 17 and protect Europe's cultural diversity.
