Coalition letters for Better Regulation principles in the EU copyright review process



On 24 November 2015, OFE has jointly signed two coalition letters, together with 28 other associations. One letter is addressed to vice-president Timmermans, who is coordinating the work on ‘Better Regulation’ within the Commission. The second letter is addressed to MEPs who are members of the JURI, IMCO and CULT committees. The signatories ask for rejecting controversial copyrights for news publishers, conducting transparent and open consultations on copyright and respecting Better Regulation principles, by not finalising the Communication on Copyright without taking into account the responses to the public consultation which also covers copyright.
