Position paper on the proposal for a directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market
EuroISPA is the voice of the European Internet industry, representing over 2500 Internet Services Providers from across Europe and all along the Internet value chain. As representative of the infrastructure behind Europe’s digital economy, EuroISPA welcomes the EU Institutions’ reflections on the evolving role of copyright in the digital single market. As the European Parliament and the EU Council scrutinise and amendment the copyright directive, EuroISPA members wish to provide the European Internet industry’s perspective, to help policymakers strike a balanced approach in the reflections.
EuroISPA members are particularly concerned with the aspects of the proposal that concern obligations for information society services to filter their users uploads, and the proposal to introduce a new intellectual property right for press publishers.
