The Copyright Reform we've all been waiting for is here. This will be a two hour workshop aimed to give you and all your friends the tools to be able to answer the copyright consultatiaon to the European Comission. This is a chance for you as a citizen can influence an immensly important legal framework which is more or less part of our every day life and which increasingly steers technical innovation in a direction of control of users and censorship!
The consultation on European copyright law is more than 10 years overdue. Even now, the consultation is both long, difficult and highly technical - and the deadline for replies is really short. Only until February 5th 2014, citizens can express their views about the last 20 years of copyright debates on the internet. This is why we aim to provide a constructive breakdown.
- What do the questions actually mean?
- What examples can we find of copywrongs in the past 15 years?
- How can we answer in a way which kicks off the reform in a direction which we like?
We want to identify together with the participants cases where copyright has hindered or blocked innovation, where copyright stops social interaction, where internet service providers and software developers are held liable for their users, and where DRM makes it impossible to continue further innovation.
