This year, a reform of the Copyright-legislation will be started. On behalf of the European Parliament, Julia Reda is currently working on an evaluation of the current Copyright directive. The stakeholders who are loudest so far are the collective societies but creators themselves are heard much too seldom.
Do the plans of the collecting societies really reflect the interests of all artists? Are they satisfied with the legislative status quo? Do they really want to re-negotiate the rights for their works for each country or would they prefer a single European market? Are they really opposed to remixes? What would their priorities be when it comes to updating the copyright framework?
