CIF Legal Update Issue 9 2017

Every month as a trusted contact I bring you my slant on the latest Legislation, Case Law and Consultations. In this edition, these are:

  • Cloud Industry Forum attains EU Cloud code of Conduct Supporter Status
  • The fight against fake news: algorithms, inquests and AI
  • EU Directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market gets closer to approval
  • Sci-Hub faces hefty fine and ISP block in the US
  • EU launches public consultation on the availability of Public Sector data

Please see my monthly book recommendation – The Voice of America: Lowell Thomas and the Invention of 20th-Century Journalism by Michael Stephens. A fantastic introduction to the development of the media, told through the lens of one of the 20th century's most interesting personalities. The enigmatic Lowell Thomas was a world renowned adventurer, broadcaster and writer in the early 20th century. Take a look at the life of a man responsible for shaping much of the modern world of news, film and television (sources of many of the copyright concerns we see today).
