Creative Commons is against article 13:
It’s an extreme dragnet that will harm creativity and fundamental rights. Delete it.
GitHub, Debian, LibreOffice, SUSE, KDE are against it.
[It] fundamentally undermines the foundations upon which Free and Open Source Software is built.
160 companies (representing startups which generate 9.5% of total European GDP and 2.5% of the labour market) are against it:
we urge you to vote for a public debate on the Directive and, therefore, against the negotiating mandate
Snowden is against it:
If you are from the European Union, get active now, go to pledge2019.eu and ask your representative to #SaveYourInternet
EFF is against it:
News that you're not allowed to discuss
Article 11, which allows news sites to decide who can link to their stories and charge for permission to do so, has also been worsened. The final text clarifies that any link that contains more than "single words or very short extracts" from a news story must be licensed, with no exceptions for noncommercial users, nonprofit projects, or even personal websites with ads or other income sources, no matter how small.
Should Stack Exchange do something about it?
SE is willing to help as long as it doesn't end in them lobbying actively:
Is this worth a blog post? Is it worth a call to action? Anything even remotely political tends to behave in a very volatile way within our community and we're .. well, reluctant to use the company voice for those purposes without some call for it.
But all we can do is remind folks in the EU that they do have a voice, but other organizations are already doing that, would adding one more logo to it really help? (That's not a rhetorical question).
The answer is: You tell us. If it's reasonable and our legal eagles sign off on it, it'll get done.
Should we as individuals do something about it?
European Digital Rights suggests we email the Legislators:
Latest Developments [6 March – 10h15 CET]
On 5 March, S&D Group Chair, MEP Udo Bullmann, tweeted that the S&D wants a thorough debate on the copyright reform and cannot support moving forward the vote. MEP Gabriele Zimmer, Chair of the GUE/NGL Group, also tweeted a similar message, but warned that opposition from the S&D, Greens/EFA and her own group is not sufficient. Therefore, it remains important to maintain pressure on the other political groups.
MEP Manfred Weber, the EPP Group Chair, made a statement claiming that the copyright reform vote will remain scheduled for the Week of 25 March. As a reaction, German MEPs Julia Reda (Greens/EFA) and Tiemo Wölken (S&D) have asked the EPP to formally withdraw its request to move the vote forward from the agenda of the 7 March meeting of the Conference of Presidents. This has yet to happen.
Any other suggestions?
Should we or SE do nothing?
