Looking at the wording, it provides great insight into the Commission’s plans for the upcoming copyright reform.</p> <p> First of all, the questionnaire completely avoids using the phrase “ancillary copyright”. Instead, it talks about “neighbouring rights”. The reason is simple: The Commission wants to get rid of all the load and negative connotations that come with “ancillary copyright”. It screams “link tax” or “Google tax” and is under fire by various experts, organisations, businesses, users and politicians since ever.</p> <p> Therefore, by changing the wording the Commission wants to create the impressions that all arguments that have been brought up against an ancillary copyright for press publishers do not apply to this “new” proposed neighbouring right. But that is just utter nonsense. Firstly, the German legal system for example does not distinguish between an “ancillary copyright” and a “neighbouring right” – it is the <a href="https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verwandte_Schutzrechte">exact same thing</a>. Secondly, <a href="http://www.openforumeurope.org/taking-bad-idea-making-worse-ancillary-copyright-snippets-disguised-neighbouring-right-publishers/">Diana Cocoru</a> has a valid point when she says: “Changing the terminology could lead some readers to conclude that the risk of ‘breaking the internet’ is no longer there.”</p> <p> But what is way more worrying is the Commission’s idea to not limit the ancillary copyright to press publishers anymore. The survey inquires after the impacts of a new neighbouring right covering publishers in all sectors. This is a horrible idea! The existing ancillary copyrights for press publishers in Germany and Spain have already shown the huge negative impact. There is no need for further surveys. Now extending the same idea is “<a href="http://www.openforumeurope.org/taking-bad-idea-making-worse-ancillary-copyright-snippets-disguised-neighbouring-right-publishers/">even a broader attack on the internet and how we use it every day</a>”. It is worse in every aspect. There would be more legal uncertainty for more stakeholders as well as more legal proceedings. Who qualifies as a “publisher”? Such a law would be a larger threat to the public domain due to further publisher’s rights as it creates an additional layer of protection that needs clearance.</p> <p> Take the survey and prevent the Commission from implementing this tremendous proposal!</p> <p></p></body></p> European Commission Europe public consultation Creative Commons Fri, 15 Apr 2016 17:20:00 +0000 Tom Hirche 2255 at http://leistungsschutzrecht.info Open letter to EU Commission http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/news/2016-04-08/open-letter-to-eu-commission <p><body> <p> As a partner of a great coalition we have signed an <a href="http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/sites/default/files/open_letter_-_copyright_reform_with_date.pdf">open letter</a> to members of the European Commission responsible for the digital single market. We demand "an ambitious reform that is fit for purpose in the digital environment and that upholds and strengthens fundamental principles such as the limitation of intermediaries’ liability, rights of citizens to freedom of communication and access to knowledge."</p> <p> The signatory organisations "underline that current EU legislation fails to deliver a framework that incentivises creativity, research and innovation in Europe." Due to the legal fragmentation of 28 different national copyright regimes, consumers, companies and organisations face many obstacles when they try to access and use creative content across borders.</p> <p> "Our laws should allow companies to do business across the EU, give individuals the possibility to access and use cultural goods, enable researchers to collaborate across borders using the latest technologies and help creators make a living from their work and contribute to Europe’s rich cultural heritage."</p> <p> That is why we need and welcome a reform of current EU copyright legislation. The goal should be to "create a legal environment where creators, consumers and businesses alike can flourish in the Single Market."</p> <p></p></body></p> AFNUM APDETIC BEUC BITKOM C4C CCIA CDT Centrum Cyfrowe Communia DIGITALEUROPE EBLIDA EDRi EIFL EuroISPA FFTI IFLA IGEL Kennisland La Quadrature du Net LACA LIBER Mozilla NEMO OFE ORG SA&S SEPE SFIB X-Net ZIPSEE Europe European Commission open letter Creative Commons Fri, 08 Apr 2016 12:26:58 +0000 Tom Hirche 2254 at http://leistungsschutzrecht.info Our brochure is finally here! http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/news/2016-04-07/our-brochure-is-finally-here <p><body><br /> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1em; padding: 0px; font-size: 12.0012px; line-height: 1.7em; letter-spacing: 0.01em; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"> After countless hours of work, the new brochure "<a href="http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/sites/default/files/broschuere_zum_lsr_von_igel.pdf">The Ancillary Copyright for Press Publishers – Background and Essential Questions</a>" by founder of IGEL Dr. Till Kreutzer is now available.

Everybody is welcomed to take the online survey. Although it is only available in English, French and German you can reply in any EU language.</p> <p> The survey contains 16 questions on the role of publishers. Primarily, the Commission wants to know if a neighbouring right for publishers would have a positive or negative impact on publishers itself as well as on authors, researchers, online service providers and end-users. Interestingly, the questionnaire distinguishes between a neighbouring right covering publishers in all sectors and one limited to press publishers. Question No. 15 addresses everyone living in a Member State that already has passed an ancillary copyright for publishers asking what impact this right has had on the person questioned. It surely would be interesting to hear which box German press publishers check here...</p> <p> The consultation period will run until 15th June 2016. Initially, the copyright reform was announced to come in September 2016.  <a href="https://twitter.com/Senficon/status/712612442350686209">It can be doubted</a> that Commissioner Günther Oettinger will meet this deadline; the analysis will certainly take some time and the final draft should consider all opinions submitted.</p> <p> The Commission is asking for it, so go tell them what you think of an ancillary copyright for (press) publishers!</p> <p></p></body></p> EU Commission consultation Europe European Union Creative Commons Thu, 24 Mar 2016 00:25:29 +0000 Tom Hirche 2251 at http://leistungsschutzrecht.info Leistungsschutzrecht vor Landgericht Berlin (Update) http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/news/2016-02-19/leistungsschutzrecht-vor-landgericht-berlin-update <p> Heute war es so weit.
