Henrique Mota, FEP Vice-President "Copyright preserves cultural diversity, and with it a European identity deeply-rooted in its versatility"

A new study published by EY " Creating growth- Measuring cultural and creative markets in the EU" was released on the 2nd of December. The comprehensive study which analyses 11 sectors of CCIs throughout the EU28, demonstrates the major contribution of CCIs to growth and jobs in the European Union.
The book sector is also featured and includes an interview from FEP Vice-President Henrique Mota, CEO of Portuguese publishing house Principia Editoria, who says “without copyright, there would be far fewer books, and therefore creative expressions would significantly be stifled. Copyright preserves cultural diversity, and with it a European identity deeply-rooted in its versatility.”
