This project – part of the EU Horizon 2020 funded consortium reCreating Europe: Rethinking digital copyright law for a culturally diverse, accessible, creative Europe – addresses gaps in both knowledge and awareness of copyright in the European Union. Its aim is to develop the EU Copyright User Portal, which will become the point of reference for anyone looking for copyright guidance within the EU. It will build upon the existing and successful website CopyrightUser.org, an independent online platform intended to make UK copyright law accessible to creators, entrepreneurs, cultural heritage practitioners, and other ‘copyright users’.
CopyrightUser.eu will be designed to help ‘copyright users’ across the EU to make informed decisions on copyright issues. The core team will produce relevant guidance in cooperation with other Work Packages within the reCreating Europe consortium.
