Geo-blocking: EIBF & FEP reiterate their request to exclude non-audiovisual copyright-protected content from the scope of the regulation

The letter also draws MEP’s attention to some very important clarifications regarding the technicalities of e-book sales by booksellers, which so far, seem to be have been very often ignored or misunderstood.
