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
