5th July 2018 – Vote on Copyright

Today in the European Parliament we voted on the Copyright Directive. I am in favour of remuneration to all artists, particularly Maltese artists. However the way the legislation is drafted raises serious concerns about the freedoms of citizens on the internet. I ask for a proper balance to be reached in this regard. We need to have a directive that reaches broad support and is properly discussed. That is why I voted for a proper debate on this Directive in September and give everyone the opportunity to properly contribute to a balanced text that makes sense, protects everyone’s interest and ensure proper remuneration to artists and authors. We cannot fast-track such an important legislation
