FleishmanHillard hosts leading MEP for discussion on copyright reform

Last week, FleishmanHillard had the honour to host Julia Reda, Member of the European Parliament, at a roundtable on the recent Copyright Reform Package. Also in attendance were a wide range of private sector companies from the media, publishing and online industries. The discussion, as expected, was passionate, with ideas being exchanged on ancillary copyright, hyperlinks, text to data mining, protected content by online services, the extension of the country of origin in the regulation and value gap. The group provided detailed examples where the proposed copyright reforms can provide a positive impact while at the same time outlining where more clarifications and precise definitions are still needed. Ms Reda was very kind to allow us to film her last week.
