About us

Committed to protect the future of knowledge.

Who we are

We are a group of organisations and individual educators, researchers, librarians, cultural heritage professionals, students, etc. who stand up and aim to be the ‘Voice of Knowledge’ – ‘Vox scientia’ – in this debate. We believe in a world where all people are able to freely exchange ideas, create, learn, and contribute to knowledge. The campaign is managed by Copyright 4 Creativity.

The challenge before us

New technologies and the Internet have enabled novel and improved ways of finding, sharing and creating knowledge, both locally and across borders. This includes sharing of knowledge by direct messages, through open repositories, in cultural heritage institutions and through research networks, as well as with students through innovative and interactive means. It also covers the discovery of knowledge through techniques such as text and data mining. All of this will change if the proposed Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market is adopted by the European Union in its current version, at various levels.

Our Goals

Oppose legislation that inhibits knowledge preservation, sharing, creation and openess in general.

Amplify the voice of knowledge professionals across Europe.

Start a conversation about a framework for copyright that is fair for all.

Create easy tools and to-do’s lists for followers to engage constructively in the debate.
