For today, have to call the network activists, the No-Sharing-Day. Who is on Twitter or Facebook on the go, is no article of large media houses, there are also no Links on this site to share – so here. The Alliance for a fair copyright law explains the reason for the Boycott: "Today, the Council of States decides on the new provisions of the law that will change your Internet serious. On this day we want to share Links on journalistic content, to make tangible what it means, if this will not be possible in the future."
Against intellectual property rights
The Council of States, the copyright law revision is not advised today, however, but the business returned to the Commission. This needs to look at the performance right now deepened to the the No-Sharing-Day, and which is currently also in the EU debate. It would lead to the great Internet would have to pay companies for Links and short previews article. The publishers argue that with these, you provide content, an environment is created, the Facebook and Google by means of advertising can manage.
The opponents of the Performance rights are of the view that the "left is contrary to tax" the principle of the World Wide Web. Also collections, such as Wikipedia, knowledge is in danger – even though Private and non-profit organizations are explicitly exempt. Wikipedia explains this in his own Blog with the possibility that "the free flow of information in close could be limits on the non-profit knowledge projects are dependent".
is Also referred to like Spain, where there is already a performance right and the result was that Google has set its news service. A Google Manager, in an Interview with the Guardian the possibility in the room, Google News, also in Europe, to set, should be the legal protection a reality.
What's the key?
What makes a Protest like the No-Sharing-Day? Some activists have tweeted to the Hashtag #NoSharingDay that they shared with the full intention of a Link – and some have done so with a certain amount of their complacency:

However, even people who recruit your Social Media circle of friends is exclusively made up of dedicated opponents of copyright reform, is likely to have plenty of reading to get fuel from the big publishers to face. Mathias Möller, the on-duty Social-Media-Editor for the Tamedia editorial is: "I don't have the impression that today less going on would have been," he says.
However, a mass movement was not the goal, explains Andreas Von Gunten. He is an advocate for the digital society for a fair copyright law, and explains: "It's about the Symbol. It's about to spread our concerns." It's a night-and-fog is been action, with the help of the performance right in the new copyright law has been introduced. The Council of States Commission, has brought the performance right only recently and, therefore, a compromise tilted. "But we will continue to fight for fair copyright," says Von Gunten.
The No-Sharing-Day will not remain the only protest action: On 23. March, 2019, are scheduled under the Hashtag #save your Internet Demos in the whole of Europe and also in Zurich. And on 21. March turns to Wikipedia, the German version of the Online ENCYCLOPAEDIA to protest against the article 13, as the new Copyright clause of the EU. Whether it has more impact, remains to be seen.
