Copyright: Time we ensured fair remuneration for creators
Today, the Legal Affairs Committee backed an update on the current EU’s copyright rules. The ALDE group managed to secure better protection for right holders’ works and therefore a fair remuneration for creators.
Jean-Marie Cavada, the ALDE group’s shadow rapporteur on this file, said today:
“We definitely need to make copyright rules fit for the digital age and should harmonise rules across our Union. At the same time, we have to make sure that authors’ or performers’ works will be better protected when uploaded on big platforms. The European Parliament wants to make it now possible to better identify protected works online and therefore ensure that creators receive a fair share for the use of their content. This directive will have a direct impact on the future of our European culture, which provides the very foundation of our political systems.”
