EU: European Commission: New copyright proposals


See the full text: Commission Staff Working Document: Impact Assessment on the modernisation of EU copyright rules (182 pages, pdf):

Statewatch has obtained the current version of the Impact Assessment which is out for Inter-Services Consultation within the European Commission. The Commission's proposals are due to be published in mid-September.

Latest: EU Commission: Yes, we will create new ancillary copyright for news publishers, but please stop calling it a “link tax” (communia-association.org, link):

"Well that was quick: just two days after Commissioner Ansip delivered a non-denial denial that “this Commission does not have any plans to tax hyperlinks” Statewatch published a draft of the Commission’s own Impact assessment on the modernisation of EU copyright rules which clearly states that the Commission will indeed propose the introduction of an EU wide ancillary copyright for news publishers."

And TDM Exception: The Impact Assessment looked so good until we really read it (copyright4creativity.eu, link) also: Dear European Commission, we don’t talk anymore, we don’t talk anymore, (…) like we used to do – The copyright review oddities part 2 (link)
