Positions

Thanks to improve this part with opinions from Manolis MAVROMMATIS about Squaring the Net concerned issues (see page Help:Political_Memory to know how to do it).

Madam President, as rapporteur of the opinion of the Commission

Culture, I would like to point out that it is extremely important to address copyright as a fundamental right.

Everybody, especially legislators, must bear in mind that if intellectual creation is not protected and if, in the name of safeguard of personal data, the legitimate rights of authors is ignored, then artistic content available to users will be reduced.

Piracy and illegal distribution of music and films on the Internet is a reality which nobody can deny. However, in another state of technology, losers are the creators, who - whether we like it or not - are the source of material offered.

Therefore, for the Committee on Culture, I invite all Members of all committees and political groups to protect European creativity and thereby preserve the artistic content available in new media.
