DESCRIPTION
Recent technological and economic developments have amplified the convergence of intellectual property rights, challenging traditional national and international laws. In light of these advancements, the Copyright Committee broadens ECTA's scope of activities within an already well-established multinational community of intellectual property experts. Presently, copyright law is only partially unified across the European Union. Whilst the Court of Justice has sought to take the lead in advancing harmonisation, by interpreting existing copyright-related directives, the European Commission has identified the unification of copyright as a substantial part of the Commission's Digital Agenda 2020. It now becomes more pertinent, therefore, to explore the commonalities and differences of intellectual property rights to avoid inconsistencies within the legal framework of the European intellectual property law. The ECTA Copyright Committee critically studies, analyses, surveys and reports on copyright-related legislation and case law and will monitor and report on the implementation in the EU Member States of the 2019 Copyright Directive.

MISSION STATEMENT
The Mission of the Copyright Committee is to actively participate in and offer valuable contribution to the development of copyright and related laws, including the further harmonisation of copyright law in the European Union, and the implementation of the 2019 Copyright Directive as well as monitoring and reporting on the international copyright treaties and copyright-related case law, focusing on the recent judgments issued by the Court of Justice of the European Union and national courts.
