CW! asks MEPs to uphold JURI mandate on Copyright Directive
Creativity Works! has joined 93 organisations from Europe’s creative and cultural sectors that are asking Members of the European Parliament to support the Legal Affairs (JURI) mandate on the Copyright Directive report during the Plenary vote on 5 July.
Ahead of the Plenary vote, there has been an intense disinformation campaign pushed by Big Tech. However, supportive MEPs such as MEP Giorgos Grammatikakis and his colleagues, alongside creative industry associations are bringing the disinformation to light. Learn more here:
