Private Ordering Mechanisms of Platform Providers Prior to and After the Implementation of Art. 17 CDSM Directive

A compact summary of our team’s findings on end-user flexibilities and platform regulaton – carried out in work package (WP) 2 of the reCreating Europe project – has been recently published on Kluwer Copyright Blog.

This is not the first time that readers of the Kluwer Copyright Blog will have read about either the CDSM Directive or the reCreating Europe project. This post enriches the body of work in this area by summarizing the key findings of our two-phase empirical research on end-user flexibilities and end-user license agreements (EULAs) of online content-sharing service providers (OCSSPs). Our research seems to confirm that we are still a long way from saying that online service providers (especially OCSSPs) respect end-user flexibilities properly, even after the implementation deadline of the CDSM Directive.
