On the 5th of December the European Commission launched a public consultation on a review of EU copyright rules. The rapid rise of the digital economy has boosted the European economy, but also presents significant challenges to existing rules on intellectual property.
On the topic of copyright reform in the EU, commissioner for the Internal Market and Services, Michel Barnier said “My vision of copyright is of a modern and effective tool that supports creation and innovation, enables access to quality content, including across borders, encourages investment and strengthens cultural diversity. Our EU copyright policy must keep up with the times."
At this important moment for copyright in the EU, we invite to join us for a breakfast with Kerstin Jorna, director of intellectual property at DG MARKT, who will speak on copyright reform.
