About the debate

On the 25th of March 2015, the College of Commissioners had a first discussion on the Digital Single Market Strategy, due in May. Already in December 2014, Jean-Claude Juncker made the reform of the digital single market one of the priorities of his mandate, pledging to “make much better use of the great opportunities offered by digital technologies” by “breaking down national silos” in several domains of the so-called digital single market such as telecoms, copyright and data protection, as well as airwaves and competition law. The Vice-President in charge of the Digital Single Market, Andrus Ansip, presented at the same time his main goals: the establishment of a revised copyright and licensing regime, a single contract law for online transactions and the abolition of geoblocking.
