The EU negotiators has agreed on new rules that will allow European viewers to use online subscriptions to movies, sports and music when travelling around the European Union.
It is the first agreement related to the modernisation on EU copyright rules as proposed by the Commission in the Digital Single Market strategy.
Vice-President in charge of the Digital Single Market Andrus Ansip welcomed the agreement: “Today’s agreement will bring concrete benefits to Europeans. People who have subscribed to their favourite series, music and sports events at home will be able to enjoy them when they travel in Europe. This is a new important step in breaking down barriers in the Digital Single Market”.
The agreement comes just a week after a separate agreement on roaming charges.
