Response to Consultation on Copyright by EU Commission

We’re asking ALL BIPP Members to respond to a Public Consultation on the Review of Copyright Rules.

It is vital that as many people respond as possible, as the proposed legislation will affect all rights holders.

Following a meeting with the British Copyright Council, Denise Swanson FBIPP has put together a set of guidance notes to help you submit. 

These notes will point you to which questions need answering, but we’re asking people NOT to cut and paste text – we need genuine answers.

The guidance notes can be downloaded here.

The Consultation Document and an online response form can be found at www.rightsholderseucopyright.eu and the deadline for the Consultation is Wednesday 5 February.

Please take time to read the guidance notes while you’re using the response form – it’s not the easiest thing to plough through!

Thank you for taking part – and for helping to protect photographers’ rights.
