A crucial part of IPA's mission is to inform member associations and the wider global publishing community about breaking developments which will impact publishers. We do this through a number of channels. the IPA website, our monthly e-newsletter, press releases and the IPA's dedicated social media feeds.

Publishers from 68 countries represented by the International Publishers Association call on the Members of the European Parliament to adopt the Copyright Directive currently before them. 

With this new legislation, publishers will be able to continue producing high-quality content for the benefit of both authors and users. It is paramount that Europe takes the lead on these issues now, and we are confident that the European Parliament will be making history in adopting this progressive legislation.
