130 EU businesses sign open letter against Copyright directive (Art. 11 & 13)


The Nextcloud Founder and CEO Frank Karlitschek addressed an open letter urging members of the EU Parliament to vote against Articles 11 and 13 of the proposed Copyright Directive. The letter, which was signed by more than 130 companies and business alliances from 16 European countries, was sent to each member of the EU Parliament.

As founder and CEO of Nextcloud I fear that Articles 11 and 13 of this directive create a serious disadvantage for European startups. The fact that more than 100 companies from different European countries signed our text within a few days shows that I am far from being the only one. I urge every politician to protect European businesses and vote against Article 11 and Article 13.

said Karlitschek.

pro-ite signed this open letter urging Members of the European Parliament to urge vote against #Article11 and #Article13. The proposed #CopyrightDirective will harm #EU businesses!

Dear Members of the European Parliament,
The companies signing this letter to the European Parliament are urging you to vote against Articles 11 and 13 of the proposed copyright directive. The text of the trilogue agreement would harm the European economy and seriously undermine the ability of European businesses to compete with big Internet giants like Google.

Auch der netzpolitische Flügel der CDU ist gegen #leistungschutzrecht und #uploadfilter. #Artikel11 und #Artikel13 der #CopyrightDirective gefährden Information und Kultur im Internet!


 


 
And check out the way they explain why no one in states that neighbor DC is tweeting about the #CopyrightDirective it must be US lobbyists!

Except:

1. Maryland, etc are suburbs of DC filled with lobbyists' offices, and;


 
Also, yes, I *have* checked things about the #CopyrightDirective and how it might or might not affect the #Fediverse.

Short version:
- everyone and their dog will be affected by Article 11;
- small, donation-supported instances might or might not be affected by Article 13, depending on the particular country of hosting and a court's humour;
- Masto.host will almost certainly be affected even though they just *host* instances.

I will reply in the relevant threads once I get to it.


 


 
I will go through all the replies I got to the #CopyrightDirective toot soon, hopefully tomorrow. There's been a lot and I had not had time to do it properly yet.


 
This is not really the European Commission, right? This screams outright #fake, it uses bogus arguments, it can't be true.

Inviate a @rysiek il vostro dominio, in quale stato della EU è locato e l'argomento dell'istanza.
Il numero utenti è utile, ma non necessario.

It does not matter if your instance is small. It does not matter if your instance is not run for profit.

You *will* be affected by the #CopyrightDirective.

Your instance being on this list will help us make that point.

Regardless of the open points, it’s now for certain: The final text of Article 13 will force the internet platforms that we all rely on to express ourselves online to install upload filters and/or otherwise restrict our ability to post and share content. We can’t let that happen.
Your elected representatives in the European Parliament will have one last chance to reject Article 13 when it comes up for the final vote just before the next EU elections. Get ready to reach out to your MEPs!

Article 13 is almost finished – and it will change the internet as we know it
