Prof. Roger Wallis and Dr. Lars-Erik Eriksson are two Swedish researchers who have been studying the impact of file sharing on the cultural sector, and the effects of today’s copyright.
Yesterday, they gave a lecture in the European Parliament under the title ”How can Europe’s Creators get a Fair Deal in the Digital World?”. The event was co-hosted by me and Lidia Geringer de Oedenberg from the Socialists & Democrats group.
The lecture is now available on-line:

The lecture is 90 minutes long and well worth listening to if you are interested in copyright reform.
