The Centre for International Intellectual Property Studies (CEIPI) is an institute devoted to education and research in intellectual property and is a constituent part of the University of Strasbourg. CEIPI analyses and comments the main developments in the area of intellectual property at national, European and international levels. From this perspective, the European Commission’s Proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on copyright in the Digital Single Market of 14 September 2016 — and more generally any step towards copyright reform in the European Union — is of particular interest to CEIPI, which hereby intends to react on the proposal to introduce in EU law new mandatory copyright exceptions and limitations to promote the Digital Single Market.
