Legal analysis of a Single Market for the Information Society

A study published by DG Information Society and Media highlights the need to modernise and harmonise further the legislative framework applicable to information society services in the Digital Single Market.

The document underlines that a series of gaps and inconsistencies appeared due to the rapid technological evolution and points out that urgent EU action is necessary to allow the next generation of Europeans to turn their creativity into new services, growth and jobs.

The study aims to review the legal rules for the information society, both on the EU-level and the national level, in order to investigate the gaps and inconsistencies, determine their practical impact and assess their future readiness. The study also proposes recommendations on how these rules should be changed in order to encourage cross-border trade, promote new technologies and promote on-line business.
