Creative sectors stress the need of objective analysis before any copyright reform

Statement regarding the adoption of the Own Initiative Report

on the Implementation of the Infosoc Directive


As members of a wide informal coalition of organisations from the creative sectors, which form an engine for economic growth and job creation, employing over 3.3% of the EU’s workforce and generating more than 4.2% of the EU’s GDP, we want to thank the many Members of the European Parliament who worked to improve the Own Initiative Report on the Implementation of the Infosoc Directive (Reda report). While not all of its elements are ideal, we welcome the fact that this non-binding report now stresses the need for convincing data and objective economic and legal analysis before any legislative initiative on copyright is undertaken.
