techUK supports European Parliament Copyright Directive delay

Commenting on the decision today of MEPs to reject the European Parliament’s JURI Committee’s report on the proposed Copyright Directive, Antony Walker, techUK deputy CEO, said:

“The European Parliament is right to have delayed the Copyright Directive today. The proposed legislation would have had significant consequences for online services and the millions of people who use them. The proposals would have prevented people from sharing online content and there would have been unavoidable conflicts with fundamental rights. 

“We are very pleased that MEPs have allowed more time to develop better solutions that achieve the right balance between the rights of copyright holders and ordinary people. techUK congratulates MEPs on this decision which will hopefully ensure a fair and balanced approach going forward which maintains a free and open internet.”
