consultation to modernize intellectual property rights

EU Consultation on Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights

The European Commission is currently holding a consultation to modernize the enforcement of Intellectual Property rights. They are looking for your input until 5 April 2016:

In its Digital Single Market strategy the Commission committed to undertake a set of targeted actions which aim to foster the cross-border digital economy but also aim to ensure a safe online environment for business operators and consumers […] It will gather experience on the use and impact of IPRED and also seek views and opinions from those concerned with the application of the Directive on its functioning and the possible need for amendments. It also aims to gather experience and opinions about the use and impact of so-called ‘follow the money’ initiatives in the area of IPR enforcement.

EDRI has created a tool to help gather more input from citizens, consumers and civil society. It is important that the European Commission receives a wide range of responses from normal citizens as well. Please take a few minutes and fill out their survey:
