Working Group on Intellectual Property Rights and Copyright Reform

13-07-2016 - 18:05

Coordinator: Jean-Marie CAVADA The Committee on Legal Affairs decided at its meeting on 25 September 2014 to set up a Working Group on Intellectual Property Rights and Copyright Reform made up of members of the Committee, with participation of a member from the Committee on Culture and Education, the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy, and the Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection.

A member of the International Trade Committee would also participate, depending on the subject to be discussed. It is a continuation of a similar body established by the Legal Affairs Committee in the previous legislature.

The aim of the Working Group is to reflect on IPR issues and especially to pave the way to the upcoming reform of the EU legal framework on copyright. The Working Group will meet once a month and will exchange views with the widest range of stakeholders and civil society. The result of the work would serve as a starting point for future legislative review in the field and would enable Members to present concrete and innovative proposals to the European Commission.

The next meeting will take place in Brussels in September.
