Towards reform of the EU Copyright Directive

At a Glance 29-06-2015

The European Parliament has long called for the modernisation of the legal framework on copyright. A Commission proposal to amend EU copyright law is expected by the end of 2015. On 16 June 2015, the Legal Affairs Committee adopted an own-initiative report on the implementation of one of the main pieces of legislation governing copyright in the EU, the 2001 Copyright Directive.
