The European Commission has launched a public consultation as part of its ongoing efforts to update European Union (EU) copyright rules. According to a December 5 European Commission press release, “the consultation invites stakeholders to share their views on areas identified in the Communication on Content in the Digital Single Market (IP/12/1394), i.e., territoriality in the Single Market, harmonisation, limitations and exceptions to copyright in the digital age; fragmentation of the EU copyright market; and how to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of enforcement while underpinning its legitimacy in the wider context of copyright reform.”

The consultation is open until February 5, 2014. To learn more about the process and to submit comments, visit the EU website.
