New website focuses on European Copyright Directive

A new website, www.article13.org (also available in Italian, German, Czech, French, Polish, Croatian and more to come) and the newsletter, INSIGHT13, focus on Article 13 of the European Copyright Directive. The website takes a no-nonsense approach to the issue and goes back to basics: What does the Directive actually say and how does the process work?

With a clear timeline, an FAQ and a paragraph-by-paragraph explanation of the European Parliament’s version of Article 13, the website provides accurate and easy-to-understand insights into the debate, while unveiling the benefits of Article 13 for creators and ordinary users.

Article 13 will facilitate the sharing of content in a fairer way and stop arbitrary removal of content and other unfair trading practices which platforms routinely resort to.

Subscribe to the newsletter

The newsletter will report on the latest developments in the process and the battle over public opinion. Brief analytical pieces will link to the best articles, videos, Tweets and memes on the subject.
