Abstract
In December 2011, the European Commission published a proposal for a directive amending the2003 PSI directive. This topic report discusses the amendments proposed by the Commission, andindicates what effect these amendments would have on the rights of the re-user and theobligations of the public sector bodies. The proposal is part of the Digital Agenda for Europe andthe Europe 2020 strategy, and intends to provide the market with an optimal legal framework tostimulate the market for PSI-based products and services. The main changes include the inclusionof museums, archives and libraries in the scope of application, the creation of a right of re-use,marginal cost charging as a default, and the creation of an independent authority with regulatorypowers.
