In light of European and national governments currently reviewing their approach to copyrights, NEMO has published a European-wide study on the issues, questions and problems that museums have with regard to copyright.

Governments around Europe are re-thinking their approach to copyright, both on European as on national level. The European Commission is preparing the Digital Single Market Strategy, including a review of copyright legislative framework, will report in late 2015/early 2016.

Since Copyright impacts on many aspects of museum work, museums need to make sure to be part of the discussions!

With this survey NEMO sought to give an overview of "real life" museum practice and IPR-related problems. Through the feedback from museums all over Europe, NEMO was able 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.
