Reportage: Do you speak CC?
Yesterday, we talked about the EU copyright reform on the event “Do you speak CC?”. The future of creation and dissemination of knowledge is not bright! The reform proposal on the table will not bring clearer and easier rules for creators, researchers, and everyone else using copyrighted works in education. What is more, the proposal introduces the so-called linking tax in Article 11, whereas Article 13 proposes solutions that faced mass opposition with ACTA.
Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič attended the event and lectured on copyright and its reform in the EU. Learn more about the event (in Slovene) here.
