Better Regulation for Copyright

Academics Meet Policy Makers




The goal of "better regulation" obliges the EU to base its actions on evidence and a full understanding of the impacts. To apply these principles to the ongoing legislative initiatives on copyright and related policy fields, academic experts are visiting the Parliament for a fact-based debate curated by the Institute for Law and the Web (ILAWS), University of Southampton, UK.
