    Copyright package Ongoing References: INT/804 Referral - Rapporteur: Mr Mendoza Castro (Workers - GR II / Spain)

    With this opinion the EESC welcomes the package of measures to adapt copyright to the requirements of the digital economy, by aiming to eliminate fragmentation while, at the same time, enhancing protection for creators. The EESC supports the exclusive related right of publishers to authorise or prohibit the digital use of their press publications for a period of twenty years and urges to harmonise the "freedom of panorama" exception by means of European rules. The EESC also refers to the ECJ judgment stating that, under certain conditions, the lending of a digital copy of a book has similar characteristics to the lending of printed works.

    The functional economy Adopted References: INT/784 EESC-2016-00975-00-00-AC-TRA Own-initiative Rapporteur: Mr Thierry Libaert (Various interests - GR III / France) Plenary Session: 521 - 14 Dec 2016 - 15 Dec 2016

    In this opinion, the EESC calls for society to begin an economic transition from over-exploitation of resources and a throw-away culture to a more sustainable, job-rich era, based on quality rather than quantity. In order to cope with the fundamental shift to a new economic model with major systemic consequences in many areas, it is recommended that a new cross-cutting and permanent body be set up in the EESC to analyse these developments.

    PRIIP / Date Adopted References: INT/811 EESC-2016-6321 Referral - Rapporteur: Mr Daniel Mareels (Employers - GR I / Belgium) Plenary Session: 521 - 14 Dec 2016 - 15 Dec 2016

    Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 requires the production of key information documents for packaged retail and insurance-based investment products. It will be directly applicable as of 31 December 2016.  In view of the exceptional circumstances that have delayed the adoption of the delegated regulation, due to the rejection of the European Parliament, the Commission proposes postponing the application of regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 by 12 months in order to reduce legal uncertainty and allow the PRIIP manufacturers more time to prepare for the application of the new rules.
