Hello everyone,

I thought you might be interested in this piece I've been sent from the Wall Street Journal. It's by Jean-Claude Juncker, a lead candidate for the European People's Party in the upcoming EU elections. 

In his article he calls for a single European digital market, as well as reforms to areas such as copyright - including harmonisation of regulations across the EU. 

This fits well with the work of the Free Knowledge Advocacy Group EU and so thought it worth a read. It's at http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304831304579543511899851756?mg=reno64-wsj&url=http%3A%2F%2Fonline.wsj.com%2Farticle%2FSB10001424052702304831304579543511899851756.html

Thanks and regards,
