Vice-President for the European Commission’s Digital Agenda recently pointed at the unsustainable position of a number of content gatekeepers and mediators. Besides, she believes that the modern community needs new business models able to better fit the digital age to replace the current dysfunctional system.


It’s pleasant to see some people starting to realize the fact that in the modern world advances in technology have long ago outrun those in copyright legislation. Moreover, it’s becoming clearer that in many cases the laws have become an obstacle to the innovation. One of those people is Neelie Kroes, a Vice-President for the EC’s Digital Agenda. Now she is calling for a debate on the “ill” current copyright system, hoping for a “return to sense.”

Such European countries as the United Kingdom were mentioned a last year’s survey as the ones having the worst copyright laws throughout the globe. The rights owners are given a right to dictate exactly when, where, how, and if a copyrighted content is allowed to be used. Well, even the European Commission began realizing that is can hardly be a good way to protect artists. Instead, it can only result in copyright legislation losing all credibility with people.

Neelie Kroes believes that the digital age gives creative people an incredible opportunity to express themselves, but the rights owners fear the Internet and prevent others use that opportunity. There shouldn’t be any fear, as there are too many examples – cinema didn’t kill theatre, despite all fears, nor did television kill radio. Today, the Internet is not going to kill any other media.

In fact, copyright is supposed to exist to make sure that creators will continue to create, but today everyone has forgotten the point. Our goal is to ensure that copyright is acting as a building block, not a stumbling one. Kroes suggest the solution: start a debate on the question to enable Europe create a single legal digital market, which would look past national and corporate self-interest. This way, a new approach to copyright can be established altogether. She calls to a return to sense instead of supporting the existing dysfunctional system, and to help everyone seize the opportunities of the digital age. She says: “Creators cast light on our world; we need to let the light shine in”.

D4T4 avatarThe reason the UK's copyright laws are so bad is because the likes of Mandelson was in bed with the likes of Sony and allowing them to dictate the laws. That's like asking a Priest to write the laws on child pornography. Neelie Kroes has the right idea “Creators cast light on our world; we need to let the light shine in”. So I say thanks to Sam and the rest of the ET team for letting the light shine into our world of Uploading.
