The "Licences for Europe" stakeholder dialogue was launched by the European Commission in February 2013 with two aims: first to support its task to review and modernise the EU copyright legislative framework, secondly to present concrete solutions to the challenges of the Digital Single Market.
In the final plenary meeting held on November 13 and jointly led by Commissioners Michel Barnier (Internal Market and Services), Neelie Kroes (Digital Agenda) and Androulla Vassiliou (Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth), stakeholders made pledges to overcome problems that European citizens may face in four areas: cross-border access and portability of services; user-generated content and micro-licensing; audiovisual heritage and text and data mining.
