The hours are ticking down until this Wednesday’s vote on the EU Copyright
Reform, and everything you do to reach out to the MEPs counts! There are
positive amendments for free knowledge on the table, and some troubling
ones, too. With less than two days until MEPs vote on amendments to the EU
Commission’s proposal -- we are making our final push to encourage
engagement on the troubling issue of pre-filtering and promising amendments
on public domain safeguards, freedom of panorama, user-generated content
exceptions, and a broader exception for text and data mining. We know that
you all care about all of those things. Please support this campaign!
We have just published a new blog post
outlining Wikimedia’s analysis of the tabled amendments, as well as
specific amendments we would like the community to support. The best way to
support these is to visit and share fixcopyright.wikimedia.org
encourage everyone to contact their MEPs.
This is our chance to show that our community is made up of diverse voices
all joining together to make a difference. Please help us to make sure that
your voice and others’ are heard!
