Petition update

Sep 13, 2018 — 

We are delighted to share the happy news with you - yesterday the European Parliament voted in favour of a Directive on Copyright that support authors’ rights in the Digital Single Market.

We are particularly pleased with the adoption of significant improvements to provisions respecting fair remuneration in contracts of authors and performers, as well as the confirmation of the introduction of a very much needed new Article establishing a principle of fair and proportionate remuneration for authors from the exploitation of their works, including online.

It is a great victory, but we have one more to win. Next, the three EU institutions (European Commission, European Parliament, and Council/Member States) will enter into negotiations to finalise the Directive. We therefore still need to convince the Commission and Council to follow the Parliament on this issue. More than ever, we need to continue showing them that we are numerous calling for improving the situation of screenwriters and directors.
