Quantcast
SIR PAUL BACKS
EU BILL

With just one day before the crucial vote in European Parliament that could decide the fate of ‘value gap’ fixer Article 13, Sir Paul McCartney has joined lobbying efforts on behalf of music, as Google ramps up its threat to a free web narrative.

Tomorrow, MEPs will vote for or against the EU Copyright Directive mandate which proposes that all information society service providers (aka DSPs) shall ensure the functioning of agreements with rights holders for the use of their works, and will hold services like YouTube legally accountable for all copyright-infringing material appearing on their platforms.

Sir Paul, whose open letter to members of the European Parliament you can read below, joins the voices of over 1,000 artists as well as industry bodies in support of the Copyright Directive. If you type that into Google today, you’ll see the search giant’s best efforts in directing the conversation.
