AHEAD makes submission to Copyright Review Committee
The Copyright Review Committee was set up in May 2011 to:
- examine current copyright legislation to identify any areas that might create barriers to innovation;
- identify solutions for removing these barriers and make recommendations as to how these solutions might be implemented through changes to national legislation;
- examine the US style ‘fair use’ doctrine to see if it would be appropriate in an Irish or EU context; and
- make recommendations, if necessary, for changes to applicable EU Directives that will eliminate the barriers to innovation and optimise the balance between protecting creativity and promoting and facilitating innovation.
