Webinar May 12: Update on EU’s Digital Single Market Strategy
What Does It Mean for Your Business?
K&L Gates will present a webinar on May 12 discussing the EU’s Digital Single Market strategy, which was released last week by the European Commission. The webinar is at 15:00 BST / 16:00 CEST / 10:00 EDT. Register here to get log-in instructions.
The objective of this strategy is to tear down the regulatory obstacles to doing business online, and it will pose potential major challenges as well as opportunities for almost every company doing business in the EU. According to the European Commission the reforms could add €415bn per year to the European economy. The strategy is built on three pillars:
- better access for consumers and businesses to digital goods and services across Europe;
- creating the right conditions and a level playing field for digital networks and innovative services to flourish;
- maximising the growth potential of the digital economy.

In this webinar Ignasi Guardans, Brussels Partner and former member of the European Parliament, will present the strategy as a whole, with a focus on some of its most challenging aspects in areas such as media law and copyright reform in the European Union.
Etienne Drouard, Paris Partner and former public officer at the CNIL (French Data Protection Authority), will present the announced changes in the legal framework of e-commerce, data management and privacy.
Annette Mutschler-Siebert, Berlin Partner, will present the measures related to e-government, e-procurement and how they will impact businesses.
