There is an ongoing trend towards stricter enforcement of copyright on the internet. Is copyright enforcement possible without infringing fundamental rights? During the Computers, Privacy, and Data Protection (CPDP 2013) in Brussels, there will be a panel discussion on 'Balancing of Fundamental Rights in Online Copyright Enforcement'. This panel features Wendy Seltzer from W3C.
