Consultation on the review of the EU copyright rules

LACA’s response to a public consultation on the review of EU copyright rules.

(March 2014)

Background

The consultation spans 80 questions and covers a broad spectrum of copyright law, looking at areas where copyright inhibits cross-border provision and the functioning of the (Digital) Single Market.

LACA’s response calls for:

  • the imbalance in the way the exceptions have been implemented across the EU to be addressed;
  • an e-lending exception for libraries;
  • better solutions for mass digitisation;
  • freedom of choice for teachers;
  • a shorter copyright term.
