This site is protesting against parts of the planned EU copyright reform, which will soon be adopted by the European Parliament.
The proposed reform could severely restrict the free Internet. Even the smallest companies could be driven to use error-prone and technically immature upload filters for all their content (Article 13)
and acquire licenses for minimal text excerpts from press products (for example the previews when you post a link) to comply with the so-called ancillary copyright for press publishers (Article 11).
This could significantly affect the freedom of opinion, art and the press.
Furthermore, thanks to Article 12, the current version of the reform harms the creators.
We therefore ask that ...
- ... you contact the Members of the European Parliament and to inform them about your position on the planned reform.
- ... you participate in the demonstrations that will take place on March 23, 2019 throughout Europe.
- ... you participate in the election of the European Parliament on 26 May 2019.
- ... authors inform themselves about how the current version of the directive in the form of Article 12 harms them.
