EU Enforcement Directive

IFRRO makes submission to the European Commission consultation on enforcement of intellectual property rights

IFRRO has made a submission to the European Commission (EC) consultation regarding the application of Directive 2004/48/EC on the enforcement of intellectual property rights. IFRRO believes that the EC, in collaboration with stakeholder representatives, could enable a better understanding of the value of copyright and how it can benefit the development of intellectual property. This includes considering whether the European Observatory on Counterfeiting and Piracy could take on a leading role in measuring the consequences of piracy and other forms of unauthorised uses of intellectual property; supporting existing and encouraging new awareness-raising programmes; and assist, including financially, the further development and deployment of apposite rights information infrastructure systems and technical standards and identifiers.
