Share your views on stakeholder engagement in EU copyright policy

The 1709 Blog is happy to share the survey below, at the kind request of Agnieszka Vetulani-Cęgiel, and Trisha Meyer. Do take part!

Share your views on stakeholder engagement in EU copyright policy 

Are you involved in EU copyright policy? Did you interact with the European Commission on the Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive?

We would be delighted if you would take 10 minutes to complete a survey on the European Commission's practice to involve relevant stakeholders in copyright policy. We promise that the survey is short: only four substantive questions that can be easily answered over your sweltering-weather-in-Belgium ice cream break!

Who are we? Agnieszka Vetulani-Cęgiel, a postdoctoral researcher in Political Science and Journalism at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (Poland) and Trisha Meyer, an assistant professor in Media Studies at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium). We specialize in EU stakeholder engagement, copyright, press publishers' rights and intermediary liability.

What is the context? The results of this survey will be incorporated in a journal article on ‘evaluating good governance and civil society participation in EU online copyright policy’. In this paper, we also conduct a longitudinal analysis of how many and which type of stakeholders have been engaging with the European Commission through public consultations on copyright policy for the period 2004-2019.

Why bother? Because it gives you a fuzzy feeling to have contributed to academic research!? More seriously, we want to give voice to those whom we are studying. Your response will help us to test our theoretical assumptions and provide more relevant results.

Please do not hesitate to be in touch with any questions you may have. Should you prefer to speak to us in person on the topic in addition to (or instead of) the survey, please feel free to drop a line as well [ or]. The survey will be accessible through 14 July.
