Catching sight of a glimmer of light: Fair remuneration and the emerging distributive rationale in the reform of EU copyright law
In the haze of highly polarized debates on the recently adopted EU Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market (CDSM), its focus on the notion of fair remuneration has passed over rather quietly.
