European Internet Forum (EIF) debate: How can the EU make a balanced copyright framework for the DSM?

29 January 2018

[information in italic is reproduced from the EIF website]

The reform of EU copyright rules has been a long-running and hotly-debated topic within the European institutions. The extensive proposals for reform will have consequences for a whole range of stakeholders within Europe. 

Hosted by the European Parliament’s IMCO Committee Rapporteur for the proposal, MEP Catherine Stihler, and co-chaired by digital advocate and longstanding EIF member MEP Brando Benifei, this debate will focus in particular on the copyright reform in the context of public interest, consumer protection and impact on citizens, looking at Title 2 (articles 3-6: TDM, education, preservation) and Title 3 (articles 7-9: out of commerce works).
