Avisa Partners advises clients, ranging from large SMEs to multinationals, on various issues that concern the intersection between IPR, telecom policy, and the Digital Agenda.

The objective of the Commission’s Digital Agenda for Europe is to reboot the EU economy and to help EU citizens and businesses to get the most out of digital technologies. Several key actions have been identified by the Commission such as the creation of a true digital Single Market and the review of the EU Copyright Framework. The Digital Agenda also involves cross-cutting issues, e.g. cyber-security, privacy, and consumer rights.

As part of its Digital Single Market Strategy, the Commission has set out proposals to modernize the EU’s copyright framework to make it relevant for the online availability of material protected by copyright and related rights, with a view to ensuring that this framework is fit for purpose in the digital age.

On matters pertaining to developments at EU level concerning ICT and the Digital Agenda, adapting to the digital economy and forthcoming regulatory changes, Avisa

  • Major European companies
  • Artists and their collecting societies in the music, film and entertainment sectors
