► Summary of the presentation
The legislative instruments overlap in the copyright law and its impact on the freedom to operate.
The EU legislative activity regulating the digital realm has been increasingly prolific. The overlap of instruments in the current legal framework has already been highlighted by previous research, for example, in relation to the European Media Freedom Act. One of the consequences of this overlap is the growing difficulty that market actors feel in defining their freedom to operate. This presentation will zoom in on a particular field - copyright law - and on how recent legislative developments, such as the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market and the Digital Services Act, interact. The presentation will highlight possible gaps, overlaps and inconsistencies, and the impact that those might have on the freedom to operate of market actors.
