Two key documents affecting online copyright- the IPR Strategy and the Draft directive on Orphan Works - are published by the European Commission this week, both incorporating ideas and proposals made by the European Publishers Council that will help sure up innovation and investment in the online content sectors. The EPC represents 29 chairmen and CEOs of leading European media corporations actively involved in multimedia markets spanning newspaper, magazine, book, journal, internet and online database publishers, and radio and TV broadcasting.

The IPR strategy, that also covers patents, trademarks, as well as copyright and an action plan against counterfeiting and piracy, includes reference to initiatives based on the EPC’s “Big Idea” on automated and integrated standards based rights management.
