Introduction, Objectives & Strategy

Malcolm Harbour MEP chaired a meeting of members of the European Internet Foundation and of the Information Society Alliance - EURIM on Monday 23rd January at the House of Lords to identify their concerns, priorities and willingness to work together on the many proposals and directives intended to foster a globally competitive Digital Single Market.

The meeting agreed three working groups with Malcolm Harbour as the political chairman:

1. Data Protection
This subgroup will report to the EURIM Information Governance Group and will meet in London and Brussels.


2. Cross-border payments issues
Problems in these areas are said to be the main obstacle to intra-EU cross-border trade and there are a variety of overlapping initiatives in this area of interest to Online Retailers, Telcos, ISPs, Banking and Finance.

The Group is in its planning stage and more information will be available shortly.


3. IPR/copyright
Issues to do with legal frameworks, the e-Commerce directive, consumer rights and common sales laws come to a head in the context of the enforcement of IPR - because digital content is most likely to be traded on-line. The Commission plans to propose a revised directive by the end of 2012 based on the Communication ‘Putting in place a seamless, integrated Single Market for Intellectual Property Rights (IPR)’ and the review of Directive 2001/29/EC “on the harmonization of certain aspects of copyright and related rights in the information society” and Directive 2004/48/EC “on the enforcement of intellectual property rights”.

The Group is in its planning stage and more information will be available shortly.
