We are very excited to announce that IGEL is now a proud member of Copyright for Creativity (C4C). We are very happy to team up with this pan-European coalition of NGOs like European Digital Rights (EDRi) or the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and associations like the European Bureau of Library, Information, and Documentation Associations (EBLIDA) working all together to promote a responsible and sustainable European copyright for the digital age. It is our aim to prevent an ancillary copyright law for press publishers on a European level which we hope to work towards by partnering with this multi-stakeholder network.

IGEL joins C4C   Am 28. Januar 2015 - 23:28 Uhr von Tom Hirche

We are very excited to announce that IGEL is now a member of Copyright for Creativity (C4C). We are very happy to team up with this pan-European coalition of NGOs including  European Digital Rights (EDRi), Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)European Bureau of Library, Information, and Documentation Associations (EBLIDA) and many more groups and associations (see the full list of supporters here) working all together to promote a responsible and sustainable European copyright law for the digital age. Recent developments in Spain and discussions in other European Member States have raised concern that the ancillary copyright for press publishers might spread in Europe or even be introduced as a pan-European regulation. By partnering up with the C4C multi-stakeholder network we hope to raise more awareness and build a stronger resistance against such dangerous development for the digital world.
