LYMEC urges ALDE MEPs to save the internet

LYMEC has approached the MEPs of ALDE Group in the European Parliament with a letter stating our concerns regarding the proposed report on Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive, due to be put to a vote in the Legal Affairs (JURI) Committee on June 20th. In the letter we voice our opinion that there is not enough evidence supporting such a massive intervention in the way the Internet and its digital market operates as the proposed wording of articles 11 and 13 would bring about. We believe that the European Union should support innovation and new business models, not desperately try to safeguard the old ones.
