Only Real Reforms Can Bring EU Copyright Rules Up to Date

Friday, September 23, 2016 - 14:45

On 14 September, the Commission published its long-awaited proposal for copyright reform.  

Despite much talk of the need for modernisation of the rules to reflect the new possibilities and expectations created by digital technologies, what has been published will make only limited progress towards this goal.

We will be analysing the proposals and looking at how they could be adapted to better allow libraries and culutral heritage institutions to do their job.  For our joint press release (signed with IFLAEBLIDALIBER and Europeana), see here.
