Commission launches 'Licenses for Europe' urging industry to deliver innovative solutions for greater access to online content

The European Commission has launched on 4 February a structured stakeholder dialogue, jointly led by Commissioners Michel Barnier (Internal Market and Services), Neelie Kroes (Digital Agenda) and Androulla Vassiliou (Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth), to seek to deliver rapid progress in four areas through practical industry-led solutions.

As announced in the Communication on "Content in the Digital Single Market" published on 18 December 2012 , these areas are cross-border access and the portability of services; user-generated content and licensing for small-scale users of protected material; facilitating the deposit and online accessibility of films in the EU; and promoting efficient text and data mining for scientific research purposes.
