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 would have 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 to comply with the so-called ancillary copyright for press publishers (Article 11). Furthermore because of Article 12 creators and authors have a worse negotiation position than before towards publishers. This could significantly affect the freedom of opinion, art and the press.
Therefore we ask you ...
... to contact the Members of the European Parliament and to inform them about your position on the planned reform.
... to participate in the demonstrations that will take place on March 23rd, 2019 throughout Europe.
... to participate in the election of the European Parliament on 23–26 May 2019.
