Submission + - Europe has a single digital market - and it's ille (

nk497 writes: Europe is trying to create a single digital market across its member countries, using universal broadband and shared regulations, to create economic and environmental benefits. So far, however, it's failed, according to European Commission vice president Neelie Kroes. According to Kroes, the only successful single digital market is the illegal one. “We have a single digital market in Europe, but it is illegal... Legal markets are fragmented. We need to change that. I cannot explain to you why you can buy the same CD in every member country but not the same digital product.”
