European Commission opens consultation on copyright in the knowledge economy

17th July 2008

The European Commissions adopted a package on intellectual property rights on the 16th of July.

Within the package the Commission adopted a ‘Green Paper on copyright in the knowledge economy’. In its review of the Single Market, the Commission highlighted the need to promote free movement of knowledge and innovation as the "Fifth freedom" in the single market. The Green Paper on Copyright in the Knowledge Economy will focus on how research, science and educational materials are disseminated to the public and whether knowledge is circulating freely in the internal market.

The consultation document will also look at the issue of whether the current copyright framework is sufficiently robust to protect knowledge products and whether authors and publishers are sufficiently encouraged to create and disseminate electronic versions of these products.

With this Green Paper, the Commission wants a structured debate on the long-term future of copyright policy in the knowledge intensive areas.

The consultation is open until 30th November 2008 and can be found here:
