"Team showcases AGORATEKA to European Parliament Officials"






On 10 October, an EUIPO team travelled to Brussels to introduce AGORATEKA (The European Online Content Portal) to the European Parliament. This European portal increases the transparency of legal offers for digital content (music, film/TV, e-books, video games, sports events) by helping consumers find legal content in participating European countries.

The aim of the event was to raise awareness about the portal and motivate more countries to join.

AGORATEKA has successfully increased the number of participating countries since going online a year ago, with 3 new members having joined only last week.

More than 40 IP specialists attended the presentations at the Parliament given by MEP Mary Honeyball, DG CNECT Head of the ‘MEDIA’ Unit Lucia Recalde Langarica and EUIPO Deputy-Director General Christian Archambeau. This was followed by a Q&A session with Alexandra Poch and René Havermans where some interesting suggestions and mostly positive feedback from the guests were shared.

During the cocktail offered, the guests had the opportunity to discover the portal online.

In total, 13 member states have already linked to the AGORATEKA portal and 3 more countries have committed to join soon.
