The Government wants to ensure that any proposals on European copyright reform serve to deepen the digital single market, promote innovation, and continue to ensure that writers and other creators are rewarded for their work.

The Government will be engaging with the European Commission across the digital single market agenda to promote a single market which supports economic growth and enables businesses, creators and consumers to enjoy the opportunities presented by the digital economy.
