Comment on OTW Legal’s International Advocacy and You!

  1. (Not an Ao3 staffer/volunteer. Replying in Danish, with links, but the gist of it is that it has been debated in Denmark, but mainly in specialist / political forums, as far as I know.)

    Her er den danske version af "Kommissionens forslag om ophavsret på det digitale indre marked":

    Og her er de høringssvar, der kom ind, da Kulturministeriet sendte direktivet til høring hos danske interessenter i nov 2016:

    Og endelig er her en nyere (marts '18) artikel fra Altinget.dk, der har kritiske kommentarer til direktivet fra danske forskere:

    1. It still doesn't make sense that something so important doesn't get talked about. And there's people in other countries that says they're never heard about it either. (France as an example and other countries but I don't really remember them)

      Btw the reason I didn't talk about articles you linked me is because I don't understand what it says at all, they're using complicated words lol

      1. But I e-mailed my MEP just in case anyway

      2. Sure, it doesn't make sense that it's not been debated more widely; something that relatively important should have been. But to some extent it depends on where you get your news from - the news article that I linked to from Altinget is part of a series of news items and opinions pieces on the digital single market, including comments from major political parties and industry stakeholders. There have been smaller pieces in other news outlets (e.g. Politiken), but mainly focusing on the perceived positive impact ("More protection of artists' rights!"), not the problematic aspects, and many of them were at the time of the first draft (late 1016 / early 2017). So it has been talked about, but you may not have noticed it if you don't actively follow political news sites, and you've had to search for the critical voices.

        And brilliant that you have emailed your MEP :)

        1. So my MEP answered me and said that she understood my concerns and is against it as well. That's always something
