Stop the censorship machinery - Save the Internet!

We have reached the first important milestone in the battle against the new copyright law reform in the digital internal market. It was first approved by the European Parliament’s Committee on Legal Affairs on June, 20, but on the 5th of July the plenary voted against it.


Importance and new goals

The plenary’s rejection of the draft law is by no means the end of the story. Rather, it is being discussed throughout the Parliament. It is up to the plenary to decide whether amendments should be made to the draft directive. In September, another vote will finally take place - until then we will observe the situation actively and will not stop.

In addition to this, Julia Reda, MEP (Pirates/Greens EFA) has called for the “SaveTheInternet Action Day” on August, 26 as a result of this first stage victory. This is intended to send a clear, Europe-wide message from both critics and activists against the copyright law reform and in favour of freedom of information.


Comments by critics

Issues such as the potentially EU-wide ancillary copyright law and content recognition technologies - commonly known as “upload filters” - are still unresolved. We therefore call for those involved in the drafting and revising of such laws to deal better with the content and consequences of the digital aspect.

In September, we also hope to have the support of MEPs in plenary, who on July the 5th - as in previous occasions - expressed their opposition to the still outstanding proposals.


Our demands

Users, strengthen yourselves!

Make a stand for the preservation of the free internet and freedom of information! Sign our petition and let the Members of the European Parliament know what decision the citizens would make!

Dear Members of Parliament: Stay well informed! Recognize the consequences the proposed drafts would have for the private user as well as for the economy. Continue to decide against directives similar to Article 11 and 13 or which restrict freedom of information in any other way.
