Joint Letter Expresses Concern for Upcoming Reform of Copyright Package
On 9 September, 25 stakeholders from across the value chain co-signed a letter asking the Commission to uphold and strengthen the fundamental principles of the Digital Single Market in its upcoming copyright reform, including the rights of citizens to the freedom of information, access to knowledge and the limitation of intermediaries’ liability.
The letter asks the Commission not to create a new ancillary right for publishers, to publish the results of the public consultation on role of publishers in the copyright value chain and on the ‘panorama exception’, and propose a text and data-mining exception that is not limited to “public interest institutions”.
The letter also calling on officials to respect the limited liability regime of the e-commerce Directive, which is key to innovation and the future of the internet.
