190,000 supporters of the Freedom of Panorama!
Jul 2, 2015 — 190,000 times thank you for supporting the petition to save the Freedom of Panorama! This is already much more than I expected when I noticed the proposal and started the petition. With the amazing help from the change.org team, I’ll be able to go to Strasbourg on Wednesday, to hand over the signatures from all of you.
From what I’ve heard, things are looking very good at the moment. It’s very likely that the current draft won’t make it to the final report of the Parliament, before the European Commission will present their legislation proposal by the end of the year.
BUT: Our goal is also to bring the Freedom of Panorama to all member states of the EU. On this, we still need support, as there are two major groups who seem to vote against it:
1. Conservatives from countries without Freedom of Panorama
2. Politicians who want to stop further harmonization of the law.
It seems like it would be a very tight vote. That’s why I’m asking you once more to reach out to your local representative and let them know what you think!

Keep fighting for people power!
