images-1.jpegYou can find a report of Reding’s speech, given on October 1 in Brussels, at the link above. Reding’s vision is important for the future flow of information and will, in my view, eventually result in Europe far surpassing the US in information flow and freedom.

In her speech today at Brussels, she laid down her immediate priorities for a digital economy. They include boosting digital services, overcoming market fragmentation on business model and having better coordination on copyright issues within EU. She also emphasised on having a policy framework to prevent Europe from losing out to the US with regard to book digitisation.

Reding backed the Digital Single Market for consumers, creative industries and internet service providers, which is promoted by the European Digital Media Association (EDiMA) in its White Paper on future of the internet policy, published in June this year.
