139 cultural & creative organisations across Europe call to upload mandate on EU copyright reform

20180705 SAA Plenary Slide 1

Signed by 139 organisations including CISAC, CIAGP, CIAM and Writers & Directors Worldwide, a joint effort across Europe is calling upon European Parliament MEPs to uphold the mandate on copyright in the plenary vote on July 5th.

Representing 12 million jobs and 4.5% of GDP in the European Union, the organisations are calling upon MEPs to back the mandate adopted by the European Parliament's JURI committee on June 20th. For creators, the goal of adopting the mandate would establish a level playing field for fair remuneration by holding digital platforms responsible for respecting their copyright obligations for the use of the works of creators.
