New Report: IP Laws Are Crippling The EU Economy
from the economic-freedom-and-personal-freedom-go-hand-in-hand dept
- Harmonise exceptions to copyright to create legal certainty across the EU about the permitted uses of works covered by IP
- Establish pan-European licensing arrangements as a matter of priority, and tie future enforcement policy to the successful development of such proposals
- Abandon repressive enforcement measures that would materially damage people's fundamental rights
- Establishes a moratorium on the exporting of repressive IP enforcement to third countries
- Makes a firm commitment to robust, objective evidence and re-evaluation of policy on the basis of it.
However I do appreciate the concerns about repressive enforcement and the aggressive expansion of repressive enforcement to other countries. All in all, it does seem like another useful report on the problems of today's intellectual property laws.
