"Freedom of Panorama" threat subdued
filed on: 10.07.2015 (10th Jul 2015)
Some days ago, I gave airspace to the issue of "Freedom of Panorama". It would appear that the threat has been laid aside.
The following text is from the change.orf petition page.
Jul 10, 2015 ó Your voices have been heard by the European Parliament and by the European Commission! After handing over the half a million signatures on Wednesday, the parliament voted yesterday with a big majority against any restriction of the Freedom of Panorama!
The primary goal is accomplished. The parliament voted under applause that the existing Freedom of Panorama is not taken away from anybody and we can all take a deep breath. However, we do not forget about photographers from France, Italy and other countries that currently donít enjoy this Freedom. We hope that the European Commission understood that this essential freedom has to apply all over Europe and we will closely monitor the proposal for the copyright reform by the European Commission that is due by the end of the year.
So sometimes petitions do work. Of course I wish them success with their further goals.
