Support the FAIR INTERNET campaign

The Internet is for everyone. However, today, whether they are famous or not, performers are still not fairly rewarded when their performances are exploited via online on demand services.

The Internet is for everyone. However, today, whether they are famous or not, performers are still not fairly rewarded when their performances are exploited via online on demand services.

Most of them receive an all-inclusive fee at the time of the recording for all type of exploitation of their performances. Others receive an insufficient proportional remuneration.

You think that performers should get a fair share? Then get involved!

Why act now? The EU is currently discussing the reform of the EU copyright legislation and a FAIR INTERNET campaign is being run by four international organisations representing over half a million performers in Europe (AEPO-ARTIS, EuroFIA, FIM and IAO). We believe that the concerns of over 500,000 performers should form part of this debate.

What do we ask for? Together we call upon the European institutions to create a sustainable cultural and creative sector where performers get a fair share of online revenues, through an unwaivable remuneration right for digital uses of their work, collected from the users who make the performances available on demand and subject to mandatory collective management.

Please support this campaign, sign the petition, follow the campaign on social media and spread the word.
