Support creation – support freedom of expression, support copyright
This petition had 8,117 supporters
Support a robust copyright system to foster the European creativity that goes hand in hand with freedom of expression.
We are authors and publishers; writers, artists, photographers and translators, booksellers, news agents, readers and consumers.
Freedom of expression goes hand in hand with freedom to create and preserve the value of what has been created – copyright promotes freedom of expression!
In the ongoing debate on how to modernise the EU framework, there are some who seek to convince us that copyright is outdated. We strongly oppose the suggestion that this fundamental freedom is not fit for purpose today – digitisation has not reduced but increased the need for copyright protection.
Today, we stand together to ask our elected politicians to offer their support for a robust copyright system that underpins the diversity of our cultures and allows the many differences of opinions to flourish.
We would like to invite you to support this campaign by signing this petition - feel free to also use the hashtag #copyrightforfreedom on your social networks.
