The Digital Single Market – The Digital Content and Copyright Directives
The EU is forging ahead with projects to establish a Digital Single Market (DSM). One building block of this global initiative is the Digital Content Directive that aims to update and harmonize the law governing contracts for the provision of digital content, among other things by creating specific warranty rights and rules for "payment by data". Another key element is the Copyright Directive which reforms key aspects of European copyright law. The keynote provides an update on the contents of the draft directives.
