[...] Plus, a framework where it's easier to legally access online content – making use of all the benefits of our Single Market. Our proposed directive to reform licensing rules is a good first step. And we also need to address other pressing issues, like making it easier to access audiovisual works online, including across borders. And making our copyright framework more modern and less fragmented.

They need a big dose of common sense injecting into them, free from the lobby of the music and film industry, who are trying to protect their obsolete assets to the detriment of budding artists and new business models.
