EU To Start Reforming Copyright in 2013

In a prediction of what 2013 will bring with respect to copyright I stated:

I hope in 2013 you’ll see a major shift towards EU members closely looking at the economics of copyright (due to current economic problems the EU faces right now) and how to reform it to make it better for innovation to grow rather than Hollywood demands. It maybe the EU that comes out on top with digital policy in the near future with the US and Canada now following in it’s footsteps because of failed copyright ideology that the market has to be protected from the consumer.

It appears as though things are looking good with that prediction.  Here is Marietje Schaake MEP (ALDE) discussing the EU Parliament’s plan on reforming copyright in the near future, and fresh off the heals of the ACTA protests which saw hundreds of thousands if not millions of people taking to the streets all across Europe to oppose the copyright treaty (a reminder that Canada has not backed down from ACTA):
