Professors and Leading Scholars Respond to the IPO's Request for Views on Modernising the European Copyright Framework

On September 14, the European Commission published draft legislation aimed at modernising the European copyright framework.  To ensure the draft legislation delivers the best outcomes for all those affected by it, the Intellectual Property Office made a call for views on the costs and benefits of the proposed measures, and suggestions for how the language of the proposed legislation can be improved.
