On 12 September 2018, the European Parliament will decide on an adaptation of copyright to the Internet age. The initiative Save Our Sound stands for the rights of content creators and the fact that they get a fair reward for using their works on the platforms. In light of the imminent vote, the initiative argues that it is time for Europe's parliament to set clear boundaries for global Internet giants and to protect European creative workers and that it is time for a strong European signal to leave the rules of the game on the web not to a few large corporations. If you want to support this initiative, you can sign the #MakeInternetFair Petition

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
