DSM Copyright - European Parliament discussions

Working Group on IPR & Copyright Reform 

A working group on IPR & Copyright Reform  set up by JURI and coordinated by Jean-Marie Cavada (FR, ALDE) brings together MEPs from several parliamentary committees. Since December 2014, the working group has auditioned all representatives of the sectors concerned by reform.

A working document summarizing the issues at stake will be produced in October, adopted by the Group in November and submitted to the JURI committee end of the year.
