On 29 November 2016, the Committee on Legal Affairs held a public hearing on Copyright reform. The aim of this hearing was to examine, after the Commission has published its copyright reform, the copyright directive proposal and especially the question of the so-called "value gap" in the context of the use of protected content by online services.

The hearing provided for an exchange of views with experts, allowing JURI Members to benefit from their knowledge and better analyse the solutions proposed by the Commission for ensuring protection of creative works.
