scarin ' The proposed EU Directive on copyright on Online platforms to voters, says Samuel Jack table . Especially in Germany the Protest against the craft is fueled poorly-made law.
for far too long have the German and European legislator to a copyright around cheating, the existence of the Internet, acknowledges, and its largest players - so, Tech companies like Google and Facebook - in the duty. The consensus, even among critics of the planned Reform.
authors, photographers, composers, or filmmakers should be more than just a few crumbs, baking, get the cake, YouTube, Instagram and the likes, with the creativity of artists, to him alone to eat. This expectation does not solve the present Reform. As a duty for the press, music and film industry, from Google and Co in the future, money collected actually to artists and Creative people to redistribute, this site searches the Text in vain.
Similarly, a qualitative threshold of tolerance of copyright is missing from quarries right: It is not the same, if a 14-year-old Harry-Potter-follower posted their own stories about their favorite magician, while another on the same platform complete Potter makes movies accessible, and this also results in a Profit. Also, it should make a legal difference whether one and the same protected photo lands on the unit Handout of a medium student or an Influencer channel with millions of subscribers.income deflecting instead of butt-delete
Thirdly, the Reform missed the opportunity to expand the self through doubt, gross copyright violations of the diversity of the network, instead of clipping them. For example, by a mechanism that does not delete potential violations of the stump, but the income that is earned in a lawful copyright deflects as it is practiced YouTube already today.
Instead, critics and supporters of the Reform have been discussing for the past three years, not on the text of the law itself, but about the possible, probable, and likely consequences - and so over miles and miles together. In fact, a technically poorly made law.scaring off the pro-European electorate
Particularly disappointing but the ignorance is driving forward, with the help of their authors, the copyright reform, even well-meaning of formulated criticism. According to the Motto: "We are the only adult in the room and all the critics are just angry children from the Internet to listen to the would be foolish." If you want to breed political apathy, then so.
Shortly before the European elections, the majority of the European Parliament will scare a mostly young pro-European group of voters. She had the impression that others decide about the laws of Central importance: namely lobby steered desks with Fax machines in the office and a private consultant for the Twitter Account.
Europe is in need of a copyright reform, even very strongly - but not this one. Because the present Reform, the European Parliament will next week vote on more harm than it eliminates. Not by what it says, but by what is missing.
