DIGITAL_RIGHTS_FORUM_Sean_Sherlock_TD.pngThe Digital Rights Forum is a public discussion on Tuesday 3rd of April at 1-2pm, to discuss the issues surrounding copyright legislation and digital rights in Ireland.

 

 

The argument has been made that statutory instrument 59/2012 which was signed into law by Richard Bruton, T.D. on 29th February of this year will curtail access to websites and services in Ireland and may represent a real threat to Irish citizens civil rights and free access to The Internet by enabling rights holders to seek potentially costly and damaging injunctions against websites as innocuous as Youtube, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Boards.ie and others.

 

 

These issues and more will be addressed the panel at the forum, with a Q&A session for attendees to directly address the panel with their concerns.

 


HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE DEBATE.
