The Commission (DG markt) – Green Paper on Copyright in the Knowledge

The Green Paper focuses on the role of copyright in fostering dissemination
of knowledge for research, science and education. The Green Paper is
intended as the starting point for a structured debate on the long-term
future of copyright policy in these fields. Copyright policy has
increasingly emerged as a transversal issue, involving not only the internal
market and cultural policies but also information society, competition and
consumer interests. The Green Paper is an attempt to organise this debate
and point to future challenges in fields that have not been a focal point up
to now, e.g. scientific and scholarly publishing, and the role of libraries,
researchers and the persons with a disability.
