Speaking at a conference in Brussels yesterday to update delegates on progress on the digital copyright project Rights Data Integration (RDI), MEP Emma McClarkin said: “Copyright is at the heart of all our work on the digital agenda within the European institutions. We want the best content possible for the European Union. We need online business models to work for creators so they can make a living whilst producing the diversity in content, language, specialisations and formats that enriches European society. We need to make sure that regulators are aware of projects like RDI and that these initiatives are supported and widely deployed.”
RDI is half way through a two-year project jointly funded by the European Union and media industry partners to enable and encourage greater legitimate use of all types of digital content.
