The vote on the Directive
“Today at 12 the MEPs will vote on the mandate to start the trilogue. I would like to see them vote against in order for the provisions of the proposed Directive to be enhanced in the future.
I would like to see in the upcoming debate the improvements of the text and data mining provision (Article 3) and the educational exception (Article 4) as well as the DELETION of Articles 11 and 13.
I would also like to know why it is suddenly allowed in the whole EU for compensations collected by the CMOs to be divided between creators and publishers. This is very bad! Yes, in some countries we already have that and this is why we have problems in SAZOR and IPF between “rightholders” and creators.
Wake up Europe!”
