iRights.Lab writes a future analysis on request of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation
We have written a study for the Friedrich Naumann Foundation that demonstrates: We need a new copyright law that corresponds to the actual living environment in a digital society.
Based on the characteristics of suitability for everyday use, economic efficiency and accessibility, we have conducted an extensive analysis of the status quo and of critical points when it comes to modern copyright law. The life reality of a gamer, a student, a start-up founder, a photographer, a researcher and a retiree were the appropriate framework for the accompanying analysis of an often very complicated and not easy to understand subject.
The current reform efforts around the highly controversial EU Copyright Directive from 2019 will be reviewed and evaluated, as well as the key points of the current developments and proposed implementations of the regulation in Germany.
In a comprehensive Future Check, we also show which paths should actually be taken from now on to achieve better copyright law in 2030 than today. In this sense, the study can also be understood and read as a recommendation for action for legislators and politicians of all parties.
We have endeavored to write in a simple and understandable way and to show connections and possible solutions. We are happy to receive feedback or recommendations via firstname.lastname@example.org.
