E.U. Ready To Propose New Intellectual Property Laws [bbc.co.uk]
Europeans who pirate pop songs or movies online could face a new crackdown as Brussels proposes updates to intellectual property laws.

The European Commission will publish its strategy for updating IP laws on 24 May.

The refreshed Commission strategy aims to standardise the way all member nations treat patents, trademarks and copyright. It also plans to bring in new customs regulations to cover the treatment of suspected counterfeit goods.

Copyright laws needed revising, said a Commission statement, because the different ways they were handled in member states was hampering economic growth. Many online entertainment services held back from launching their services throughout the region because of the difficulties, it said.
