Only you can #fixcopyright but you need to start acting now!

The European Parliament (EP) is discussing the European Commission (EC) proposal for a new European directive on copyright, that will endanger education and scientific research, freedom of expression and freedom of information.

The Members of European Parliament (MEP) submitted amendments to the EC’s proposal that are now being discussed and voted in EP’s committees according with the following timetable, taken from Julia Reda’s Website:

June 29, 2017 LIBE Vote on opinion
July 11, 2017? ITRE Vote on opinion
July 11, 2017 CULT Vote on opinion
July 12 or 13, 2017 JURI Debate of report amendments
September 7, 2017 JURI Debate of compromise amendments
October 9 or 10, 2017 JURI Vote on report
Winter 2017? EU Parliament Plenary Vote on report

We all need to contact our representatives in the European Parliament (MEPs) and tell them:
  • to support and vote favourably on those amendments that widen the scope of the TDM exception. Everyone that has legal access to texts and data should be allowed to mine those texts and data. The right to read is the right to mine. EC wants to allow only research centres to do TDM, and only for non commercial purposes, prohibiting startups, public entities, cultural heritage institutions, journalists and citizens to do it;
  • to support and vote favourably on those amendments related with technological measures. Technological measures (DRM) kill your right to exercise copyright exceptions in education, scientific research, cultural heritage, etc. We need to change this and now there’s an opportunity: if those amendments are approved, technological measures will never stop citizens from exercising the exceptions again in Europe. The best part is those amendments do not change the rightholder’s rights, they will have exactly the same rights, they can still use technological measures (DRM) in their works and DRM will still be protected by law;
  • to support and vote favourably on those amendments that extend the copyright exception for education and reject a licensing system and levies, that educational entities cannot afford;
  • to support and vote favourably on those amendments that reject article 11º (publishers’ rights). EC wants to create a new 20 years related right to be given to news’ publishers, endangering the sharing of links with snippets or a title to a new’s article. A similar law didn’t work in Germany and was disastrous in Spain. It is also an abject limitation on freedom of expression and access to information and independent academics unanimously oppose to extra copyright for news sites;
  • to support and vote favourably on those amendments that create a new exception for user generated content;
  • to support and vote favourably on those amendments that harmonise the panorama exception.

Last Friday, the European People’s Party (EPP), the party with more MEPs (and votes) in the European Parliament, adopted a position on EC proposal that, if approved, will take Europe to the dark ages.

The @EPPGroup adopted a position on #Copyright. If new rapporteur @AxelVossMdEP follows it, he’d have to ignore all academic evidence. pic.twitter.com/CVOCT3u9Cd
