In a galaxy far far away, about 700 kilometers south of Groningen, the European Parliament meets in Strasbourg. In an obscure room in the Parliament building representatives of the European Commission, Council and Parliament sit together to create, on the basis of their respective compromise texts, one big compromise text on the long-awaited Copyright Directive. This legislation will change the way platforms deal with copyright-protected material and is one of the most lobbied pieces of legislation in the history of the EU. But what does it really say and how will it affect you?

  • Matthijs Pontier

    Matthijs Pontier Piraten Partij (NL)

    Matthijs Pontier was lead candidate for the Piratenpartij last European elections. The Piratenpartij aims to protect civil rights, such as privacy and freedom of speech; wants to improve and open up our democracy, so it becomes resistant for corporate lobbying and serves the people instead. Pirates aim for freedom of information, art and culture. They want to reform copyright so that it benefits of artists and creators, instead of the copyright industry. They aim to set incentives to create and share good information and beautiful art, instead of building a fence around and limiting its exposure to the elite who can afford it.

    For the elections of March 30th, Matthijs is a candidate in a cooperation with the Greens in Waterschap Amstel, Gooi en Vecht and with 'Code Oranje' in the Provincial States. Both aim to establish a democracy, in which cooperation with the people is put centrally; by the people and for the people.

    Next to that, he is a co-founder of Idea Synergy (https://idea-synergy.com), a social enterprise that facilitates co-creation through digital media, that could, for instance, serve as digital fan-platforms.
