New EU rules for sale of digital content proposed
The European Commission today revealed the first two pieces of legislation it wants to pass under its Digital Single Market project.
New rules for the sale of digital content, and changes to allow portability of content that consumers have paid for, have been proposed. A more detailed explanation is below.
Responding to the announcements, Ukie CEO Dr Jo Twist said:
Parliament may be in recess but there are plenty of policy consultations that we’re responding to that will have an impact on UK games businesses.
If you’ve got thoughts on any of the below please let Andy know.
We want members' views on three new consultations that have been launched.
Addressing different aspects of the digital economy, these all address issues which Ukie has been working on for a long time. We will be responding to each in turn, and need member input to ensure we are accurately representing the views of the games industry.
We have opened a forum discussion on the three consultations, where you can give us your thoughts. Alternatively you can email Andy directly to discuss in private.
