Consumer Behaviour Online – Implications for copyright and the Digital Single Market

Traditional media – such as DVDs, CDs and even vinyl – while not entirely surpassed are increasingly giving way to streaming services, a trend that demands amongst other things the availability of ubiquitous broadband. Consumers want the freedom to choose how, where and when they consume audiovisual content.

The way in which consumers behave online has many other implications, not least regarding the need for copyright law to reflect the realities of the internet age. Current copyright law is confusing and most users do not know what is legal or not. Without reform, clarity and harmonisation, we risk criminalising many ordinary habits of online users.

The seminar seeks to explore these issues, some of the key topics include:

  • What are the trends in consumer behaviour online and what are the implications?
  • Does the new proposal ensure the right balance between different rights and freedoms in the digital age and harmonised across the EU?
