Comment Neelie
[...] On User Generated Content positions are diverging, the main thing it proved is that the world has changed. Europeans interact with creative content in a way that is itself both often creative and usually instantaneous. They don't expect to have to ask permission to upload their own wedding video. So it is clear that the traditional approach, requiring prior licensing, does not fit current internet practice and behaviour. In my view, this requires further work as part of the legislative process.
