Don't break the Internet!, Mozilla Copyright Campaign in Europe

After nearly a decade, the European Commission has presented its draft law for copyright reform. And it’s about time: our copyright laws are out of step with today’s technology. But the proposal to reform copyright lacks ambition, and is inadequate to address the today’s challenges. It even contains some very dangerous provisions - such as a snippet tax, and upload filters for online platforms - that would put the open internet, innovation, and creativity, at great risk. This session will unpack some of the key issues at stake in the reform and how you can get involved. Together we can achieve an EU copyright reform that fosters innovation and creativity.
