Digital single market
The Digital Single Market strategy aims to open up digital opportunities for people and business and enhance Europe's position as a world leader in the digital economy.
A Digital Single Market (DSM) is one in which the free movement of persons, services and capital is ensured and where the individuals and businesses can seamlessly access and exercise online activities under conditions of fair competition, and a high level of consumer and personal data protection, irrespective of their nationality or place of residence.
The European Commission has identified the completion of the Digital Single Market (DSM) as one of its 10 political priorities.
MEPs of the Committee on Legal Affairs vote to ensure that artists have stronger laws to protect their copyright works when these are used online (Youtube, github...) and that publishers of press publications are remunerated when their articles are digitally used by online services (Google news...).
