Adapting EU Rules to the New Digital Age
The emergence of new technologies and trends are transforming the way of producing, distributing and accessing creative content in Europe. According to the European Commission, 49% of EU internet users listen to music, watch videos and play games online and nearly 70% download or stream films for free, whether legally or illegally. With creative and cultural industries accounting for 4.2% of the GDP of the European Union and nearly 7 million workers, the introduction of a copyright framework, aimed at protecting the sector, is thus key to preserve its contribution to EU growth and competitiveness.
