Copyright Harmonisation in the EU: Securing a Borderless Single Market in the Digital Age

04. veebruar, 2014

This timely international symposium on the 26th of March provides an invaluable opportunity for key stakeholders within the public and private sectors to explore the measures that are being taken to tackle territorial fragmentation of copyright laws and move towards a borderless EU digital single market, with access to content guaranteed across all Member States. 


The digital economy has been a major driver of growth in the past two decades, and is expected to grow seven times faster than overall EU GDP in the coming years. As such, the European Commission aims to ensure that copyright and copyright-related practices, such as licensing, remain fit for purpose in the current digital age.

Whilst good progress has been made in delivering the copyright-related actions identified in the Digital Agenda and the Intellectual Property Strategy, work still needs to be done to secure an effective single market in the area of copyright. 

As part of its on-going efforts to review and modernise EU copyright rules, the European Commission has launched a public consultation on EU copyright rules with the completion of its review expected in Spring 2014.
