This Briefing forms part of a programme of research commissioned by the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee of the European Parliament (‘the IMCO Committee’). The research programme has the aim of updating the study undertaken for the IMCO Committee in 2014 on the “Contribution of the Internal Market and Consumer Protection to Growth”. The overall aim is to provide background information and advice for IMCO Committee members on the benefits of legislation established in the field of internal market and consumer protection and to reflect on priority measures and actions to be undertaken in this field. A workshop was held in Brussels on 10th July 2018, at which progress on this programme of research was presented and discussed. This Briefing focusses on tools for use in the identification of optimal policy making and their application in the area of the internal market and consumer protection. It uses the smart Single Market regulation concept – developed in earlier research for the IMCO Committee - to present the tools for optimal policy making and to assess the development of policy for the internal market and consumer protection. First, some context is provided with a discussion of the Europe 2020 targets, the “Contribution to growth” report and the Juncker Plan. Second, the smart Single Market regulation concept is introduced and finally policy developments and legislation for the internal market and consumer protection are discussed with recommendations for improvements to the policy-making process.

Copyright in the digital single market

22-03-2019

The European Commission presented a legislative package for the modernisation of the EU copyright rules, including a new directive on copyright in the digital single market on 14 September 2016. Stakeholders and academics have been strongly divided on the proposal.

The European Commission presented a legislative package for the modernisation of the EU copyright rules, including a new directive on copyright in the digital single market on 14 September 2016. Stakeholders and academics have been strongly divided on the proposal. In February 2019, after more than two years of protracted negotiations, the co-legislators agreed on a new set of copyright rules including two controversial provisions: 1) the creation of a new right that will allow press publishers to claim remuneration for the online use of their publications (Article 11), and 2) the imposition of content monitoring measures on online platforms such as YouTube, which seeks to resolve the 'value gap' and help rights-holders to better monetise and control the distribution of their content online (Article 13). Furthermore, in addition to the mandatory exception for text and data mining for research purposes proposed by the Commission in its proposal, the co-legislators agreed to enshrine in EU law another mandatory exception for general text and data mining (Article 3a) in order to contribute to the development of data analytics and artificial intelligence. In February 2019, Coreper endorsed the compromise text on behalf of the Member States, and the Legal Affairs Committee (JURI) approved it. The political agreement must now be voted in plenary by the European Parliament and formally adopted by the Council to finalise the legislative procedure. Fourth edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

Contracts for the supply of digital content and digital services

21-03-2019

On 29 January 2019, the European Parliament and the Council reached a provisional agreement on the European Commission's proposal for a directive regulating the private-law aspects of contracts for the supply of digital content and digital services in the internal market. The directive would, for the first time, harmonise some aspects of such contracts at EU level.

On 29 January 2019, the European Parliament and the Council reached a provisional agreement on the European Commission's proposal for a directive regulating the private-law aspects of contracts for the supply of digital content and digital services in the internal market. The directive would, for the first time, harmonise some aspects of such contracts at EU level. The co-legislators agreed that embedded digital content would not be regulated by this directive, but rather by that on sale of goods. They also agreed that the duration of legal guarantees for digital content and services would not be fully harmonised but that national laws should not limit it to less than two years; that for the first year from delivery the burden of proof should be on the supplier; and that traders would be required to provide updates. The directive would also establish what remedies consumers are entitled to and the order in which they can be used. Parliament is expected to vote on the provisional agreement during the March II plenary session. Fifth edition of a briefing originally drafted by Rafał Mańko. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure. To view previous editions of this briefing, please see: PE 614.707 (February 2018).

Understanding algorithmic decision-making: Opportunities and challenges

05-03-2019

The expected benefits of Algorithmic Decision Systems (ADS) may be offset by the variety of risks for individuals (discrimination, unfair practices, loss of autonomy, etc.), the economy (unfair practices, limited access to markets, etc.) and society as a whole (manipulation, threat to democracy, etc.). We present existing options to reduce the risks related to ADS and explain their limitations. We sketch some recommendations to overcome these limitations to be able to benefit from the tremendous ...

The expected benefits of Algorithmic Decision Systems (ADS) may be offset by the variety of risks for individuals (discrimination, unfair practices, loss of autonomy, etc.), the economy (unfair practices, limited access to markets, etc.) and society as a whole (manipulation, threat to democracy, etc.). We present existing options to reduce the risks related to ADS and explain their limitations. We sketch some recommendations to overcome these limitations to be able to benefit from the tremendous possibilities of ADS while limiting the risks related to their use. Beyond providing an up-to-date and systematic review of the situation, the report gives a precise definition of a number of key terms and an analysis of their differences. The main focus of the report is the technical aspects of ADS. However, other legal, ethical and social dimensions are considered to broaden the discussion.

Les politiques de l’Union – Au service des citoyens: La transformation numérique

05-02-2019

Une révolution numérique est en cours, qui transforme le monde tel que nous le connaissons à une vitesse inouïe. Les technologies numériques ont changé non seulement la façon dont évoluent les entreprises, mais aussi celle dont les gens se connectent, échangent des informations et interagissent avec les secteurs public et privé.

Une révolution numérique est en cours, qui transforme le monde tel que nous le connaissons à une vitesse inouïe. Les technologies numériques ont changé non seulement la façon dont évoluent les entreprises, mais aussi celle dont les gens se connectent, échangent des informations et interagissent avec les secteurs public et privé. Les entreprises et citoyens européens ont besoin d’un cadre politique adéquat ainsi que de compétences et d’infrastructures appropriées pour tirer parti de l’énorme valeur générée par l’économie numérique et assurer le succès de la transformation numérique. L’Union européenne joue un rôle prépondérant dans la définition de l’économie numérique, grâce à différentes initiatives politiques, qui vont de la promotion de l’investissement dans la réforme du droit de l’Union à des actions non législatives visant à améliorer la coordination et l’échange de bonnes pratiques des États membres. La législature 2014-2019 a vu se concrétiser un certain nombre d’initiatives dans les domaines de la numérisation de l’industrie et des services publics, des investissements dans les infrastructures et services numériques, dans les programmes de recherche, dans la cybersécurité, dans le commerce électronique, dans le droit d’auteur et dans la législation sur la protection des données. Les citoyens de l’Union sont de plus en plus conscients du rôle important que les technologies numériques jouent dans leur vie quotidienne. Selon un rapport de 2017, deux tiers des Européens affirment que ces technologies ont des conséquences positives sur la société, sur l’économie et sur leurs propres vies, mais qu’elles s’accompagnent néanmoins de nouveaux défis. La majorité des répondants estiment en effet que l’Union européenne, les autorités des États membres et les entreprises doivent prendre des mesures pour remédier aux conséquences de ces technologies. La récente proposition du programme «Europe numérique» (pour la période 2021-2027), premier programme de financement exclusivement consacré au soutien de la transformation numérique dans l’Union, montre que cette dernière entend renforcer son soutien à la transformation numérique dans les années à venir. De nouvelles mesures seront sans doute nécessaires, notamment en vue d’accroître les investissements dans les infrastructures, de stimuler l’innovation, d’encourager les champions du numérique et la numérisation des entreprises, de réduire les fractures numériques, de supprimer les obstacles restants au marché unique numérique et de garantir un cadre juridique et réglementaire adapté dans les domaines de l’informatique de pointe et des données, de l’intelligence artificielle et de la cybersécurité. Le Parlement européen, en tant que colégislateur, participe très étroitement à la conception du cadre politique qui aidera les citoyens et les entreprises à exploiter pleinement le potentiel des technologies numériques.

Implementation of the Treaty provisions concerning enhanced cooperation

20-12-2018

This study examines the existing (and planned) instances of enhanced cooperation (EnC), their institutional set up and state of play. Our analysis is at this point of time limited to the one EnC case with sufficient implementation record (EnC in divorce law, applied for more than six years to date). The remaining cases either began very recently (PESCO in late 2017); are in the preparatory stages (EPPO); are set to start in the near future (2019 for EnC in property regime rules); have not as yet ...
