techUK heads to Strasbourg to talk Copyright reform

This week techUK is in Strasbourg, where the European Parliament is meeting for its plenary session, to continue raising its concerns about the direction of the proposed Copyright directive. The copyright directive is a key part of the EU’s Digital Single Market initiative however the reforms in their current form have the potential to damage the future of the European digital economy.

With the reforms currently being discussed by both the European Parliament and the European Council, where the Bulgarian presidency has recently published its own version of the reforms, techUK is going to be in Strasbourg to meet with Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) to highlight our key concerns on this DSM file. techUK is teaming up with EDiMA and CCIA to demonstrate the cross-cutting nature of our concerns.

The key areas techUK will be raising with MEPs will be provisions around the future of text and data mining, additional rights for press publishers and user-uploaded filtering requirements. techUK has already made its views on these issues clear, for example in its response to the UK Intellectual Property Office’s call for views on the proposed directive.

techUK looks forward to engaging with MEPs on the file and to help ensure the reforms harness Europe’s future digital economy, not hinder it.

For more information about techUK’s work on Copyright and Intellectual Property please contact Jeremy Lilley.
