Call for Views on the European Commission's Proposal for Legislation on Cross- Border Portability
The European Commission has recently published draft legislation that is intended to ensure that all digital services are portable within the European Union. This would mean that a person who lives in the UK, who subscribes to a digital content service there, would be able to continue to access that service when they are elsewhere in the EU. This would be provided they have the right level of internet connection.
