Copyright for Creativity call on Commission to encourage access

Copyright for Creativity, a diverse group representing libraries, digital civil liberties, free software, and an open, user-friendly internet have sent a letter (how quaint!) to the College of Commissioners, who are considering possible changes to EU copyright law. C4C, as they are inevitably known in the age of text-speak, are urging the commissioners to discourage excessively restrictive copyright licensing policies, and instead to encourage access to knowledge.

Groups representing authors, publishers and collective societies, meanwhile, are pressing the commissioners to go for stronger copyright protection. No change there, then. Evidence-based policy-making is no doubt in progress, assisted by those who have plenty of evidence to support what they want.
