The Government is committed to ensuring content creators are appropriately rewarded for the content they make available online while also ensuring that we continue to encourage investment in new content and innovative services. The Government is currently engaging with these issues as part of the EU Digital Single Market initiative, where we are negotiating a package of measures which seek to support fairness in the online value chain.
