CopyCamp 2016 post-conference publication is here! Publikacja pokonferencyjna CopyCamp 2016 już jest! By far the most speakers came from the Visegrad Group (V4) countries, and we’d like to make their perspectives even more visible by releasing this book
Now that CopyCamp 2016 is behind us we wanted to share a few words on how it went.
This year, the conference took place during Thursday 27th and and Friday 28th of October in Warsaw, Poland. It was the 5th time we have hosted CopyCamp and this year we proudly managed to gather the largest number of foreign conference speakers to date. We had the pleasure of hosting guests representing the countries of the European Union, including the countries of the Visegrad Group, as well as representatives of Belarus, Colombia, Canada and the United States. Around 250 people who attended the conference, as well as our viewers online streaming via google hangouts, heard from a total of 70 speakers. In addition, dozens of people took part in the five workshops that accompanied the conference (photo. Rafal Nowak, CC BY SA).
We listened with particular interest to Ms. Therese Comodini Cachia, Member of the European Parliament and the rapporteur for the proposed Directive on copyright in the Single Digital Market.

In the EC copyright reform proposal, we miss the most a legalization of non-commercial file sharing. Today, we publish our proposal to regulate this issue, where we explain why this is important and how to aproach it within the boundaries of the international law. We wish you a pleasant reading.
