The European Commission is consulting stakeholders on the proposed eCommerce Directive, aimed at removing arriers to the establishment of providers of information society services and to the cross-border provision of on-line services in the internal market. The deadline is 15 October 2010.
The European Commission wishes to study in detail the various reasons for the limited take-off of electronic commerce and evaluate the implementation of the Directive. So it is asking interested parties directly for their reaction and experience on a number of subjects, some of which are related to copyright, multi-territory licensing and liability of intermediaries.
IFRRO will be submitting a response. The consultation is available here.
