The European Union has many policy intiatives related to the Internet, ecommerce and online content or copyright. In fact, there are so many, it is frequently difficult to keep up with them. In this section, I report on Internet-related matters within the EU institutions - European Commisission, Council and Parliament - and the activites of the key policy-makers.
Specific policies which are under consideration, such as the IPR enforcement directive and IP or copyright enforcement initiatives, are reported in a dedicated section. Similarly, the section on Internet Threats looks at any other EU policy initiatives which imply Internet blocking for any other purpose.
