Rethink Needed on New European Copyright Proposals
techUK responds to publication of new European Copyright Proposals
Responding to the new European Copyright proposals, Charlotte Holloway, Policy Director at techUK, said:
“Today’s copyright announcement sadly falls short of the Commission’s original aim to create rules that are fit for the digital age. The tech industry will have big questions for the Commission about how such moves support innovation, particularly for European start-ups and scale-ups.
“New proposed rules on hyperlinking content are a step backwards – introducing new rights could result in serious and unintended consequences that undermine the decentralised structure of the internet.”
