Open Knowledge Day on Studio City

“The Directive threatens free knowledge. We are all authors, we are all creators online, so requirements for platforms to filter uploads by third parties, by their users may really lead to a situation where these same filters can be applied to other types of content. Not just copyright violations, you can basically censor anything.”

This is how Jan Gerlach (Senior Public Policy Manager, Wikimedia Foundation) commented on the possible domino effect of the Directive on copyright and related rights in the Digital Single Market. The whole video of the programme Studio City can be accessed here.
