Developing European Legal Information Markets Based on Government Information: First Findings from The Add-Wijzer Project

Abstract
We report on part of an EU funded eContent programme and then develop this to take into account the proposed Directive on re-use of government information.[1] We argue that there are potential advantages in bringing the US federal model (of owning copyright but not asserting control) over to Europe. Our particular area of interest is legal information and we discuss whether this is a special form of government information or whether it should be the general model for other government copyright materials.
