After lengthy consultations and two European Parliament reports, the European Commission has finally announced its proposal to reform copyright law in the EU. Copyright in the EU is one of the key reforms necessary to create the Digital Single Market, one of the high political priorities for the European Commission. The proposal aims to modernise the existing framework by updating related reproduction and distribution rights and communications with the public.
