Last Push for Copyright Directive

After years of lobbying, compromise and negotiation, the European Copyright Directive will go to the plenary session of the European Parliament on March 27th.

Whilst the legislation is far from perfect, it importantly confirms that content-sharing platforms must be held accountable for the copyright works they make available and from which they profit. It also, through a range of other provisions, encourages transparency and accountability for European creators on whose work a richly diverse internet depends.

Please help this important piece of legislation become law by writing to your MEP encouraging them to support the Directive on the 27th March. You can find out who your MEP is and how to contact them here
