The Network of European Museum Organisations (NEMO) has recently published a report on copyright within museums. NEMO sought to give an overview of “real life” museum practice and IPR-related problems in order to produce well-supported recommendations for how copyright in Europe should be shaped to help museums with ensuring the best public access possible to their collections.
The European Commission is preparing the Digital Single Market Strategy, including a review of copyright legislative framework, will report in late 2015/early 2016.
