The European directive for royalty was voted to the European Parliament on Tuesday. 658 elected representatives were present at the vote in Strasbourg. 348 representatives voted for the motion,274 voted against it and 36 abstained. The project is very complicated and demands that platforms like Google, Apple and Facebook filter content like press articles, movies or music, to insure a fairer payment for their creators.
This progress is huge for small businesses like us to exist against big companies like them. This is nothing more than democratic not to let the strongest lead.
It is now time for each member state to include this European directive into their national law. However, as national laws don’t always fit with this project, it will certainly lead to great debates of which we surely will give you some news.
We stand for creators’right to get the payment they deserve.
