SIGN THE PETITION TO SUPPORT COPYRIGHT- MORE THAN 3000 SIGNATURES, STILL 2000 NEEDED

Publishers and Booksellers Associations from all over Europe join forces to support a petition in favour of copyright, called „Copyright for Freedom“.

The European Commission is updating papers on the Digital Single Market (and Copyright) right now. That’s why it is essential to make sure that European policy makers in Brussels understand, that

  • Copyright does not restrict creativity and trade
  • Copyright does not limit freedom of speech – on the contrary: it is flourishing because of copyright

We ask all of you, no matter whether publishers, booksellers, authors, editors, translators or agents to sign the petition on https://www.change.org/p/european-parliament-european-commission-council-of-the-european-union-support-creation-support-freedom-of-expression-support-copyright-7

Make sure that  the voice of the book trade will be heard before the papers on the Digital Single Market will be published in May.
