The Irish Visual Artists Rights Organisation (IVARO) is calling on artists and their supporters to take part in a major consultation which has been launched in Europe on the future of copyright. The consultation (in the form of an online questionnaire) deals with the reform of copyright rules in Europe and covers issues of key importance for creators, including digital content, copyright exceptions, fair share for creators and others. It has already generated major attention from the copy-left movement and internet activists who are mobilizing consumers to submit replies that call for a major reform.
We need to act, to balance the picture and ensure visual creators’ interests are safeguarded.
In order to help creators weigh-in, an online campaign has been set up at: http://www.creatorsforeurope.eu/en/. This site includes a simplified version of the questionnaire that creators can easily fill in. It also includes a petition in support of copyright and culture. Please take part in this consultation and help influence the outcome of this important process.
