Let Battle Commence: review of the digital IPR enforcement directive

Philip Virgo Profile: Philip Virgo


One recurrent theme of this blog is “The silent majority gets what is deserves – ignored”. Another is the need to respond to genuine opportunities to input your views, before that most dangerous of forces “ignorance in motion” (Goethe), gathers momentum. The European Commission has launched a consultation on its “Report on the enforcement of intellectual property rights to “verify”  the information provided in the report and identify “additional issues that should be addressed in the context of a possible review of the Directive. You have until March 31st to submit your views.    

This is the probably the best time to input new thinking on how to reconcile the various positions on IPR enforcement and turn the current lose-lose conflict, protecting the creativity of the past from that of the present, into a win-win symbiosis.
