Copyright

Copyright policies that provide incentives and protections for creators without curtailing the unique ability of the Internet and digital media to empower users are critical. As major changes to copyright law and policy are considered, including the European Commission’s ongoing public consultation, it’s important to ensure that the result is copyright that works for everyone. While digital technologies can enable infringement, they also empower all of us to create, offering innovative ways to share content and expand free expression. Key issues at hand include territorial management of copyright, copyright terms, limitations and exceptions, libraries, research, and text and data mining.
