FilmED IP team meets DG MARKT

On the 23rd of April the IP team met at the EC with representatives of the DG MARKT, DG Culture (Media) and DG CONNECT (Film Heritage) in order to present the work in progress research that has been carried out by the filmed IP team.  Basically up to now, they have been focusing on the implementation of Article 5(3) (a) Directive 2001/29/EC and doing a comparative research among the 32 covered countries by the study.

Next actions of the IP team will be the further evaluation of specific copyright aspects; the existing divergent licensing schemes in selected jurisdictions; the licensing practices; and Information from schools (or public authorities) on individual experiences licensing – and obstacles (legal or practical) provided by the surveys.

The meeting was fruitful and it was decided to open a permanent dialogue to follow the development of the report with them.
