Passages clés de la résolution pour avis[edit]

Droit d'auteur:

  • 3. (...) there is concern that some people increasingly hear the word copyright and hate what lies behind it;
  • 6. Calls on the Member States and the Commission to develop IPR policy in order to continue to allow those who wish to create their own content and share it without acquiring IPR to do so;
  • 7. Calls on the Commission finally to submit a proposal for a directive on the enforcement of copyright in the digital domain that is tailored to present requirements, so that agreements can be reached with our trading partner on the basis of modern European legislations.

Sur la gouvernance :

  • 10. Notes that increased governmental involvement and regulation hampers the open and unrestricted nature of the internet, thereby limiting the potential for increase e-commerce and constraining EU businesses operating in the digital economy; believes a multi stakeholder approach is the best means of striking a balance between public and private interests on the internet (...).
