#SaveYourPress

The #SaveYourPress  campaign is a cross-border initiative to protect independent media in Europe and defend intellectual property, backed by publishers across the EU, as well as the European Newspaper Publishers’ Association (ENPA) , European Magazine Media Association (EMMA) and News Media Europe

Currently, publishers do not have their own rights to protect their press publications under EU copyright law. The European Commission’s proposed changes to the EU Copyright Directive would give broader legal rights to copyright holders. The Directive is currently under scrutiny in the European Parliament and some of its core provisions, including the Publisher’s Right , face fierce opposition. 

To remain competitive and independently financed, Europe’s publishers need an appropriate and updated legal framework that addresses the complexities of online copyright and licensing. Learn more on www.empower-democracy.eu
