Reform gone wrong: an Opinion by the European Copyright Society

The EuropeanEuropean Parliament Copyright Society has published a consolidated Opinion on the EU Copyright Reform Package, currently making its way through the Committees of the European Parliament.

The Opinion welcomes the broad policy objectives of the proposals but severely criticises the fragmented approach. The proposals do not achieve harmonisation, author and consumer interests are overlooked, private ordering may trump flexibilities, and the evidence base for the most serious interventions (Art. 11 Neighbouring right for publishers; Art. 13 Platform liability) is poor.

The full opinion can be downloaded here, or from the website of the European Copyright Society.
