C4C is proud to announce that the Network of European Museum Organisations (NEMO) signed on to our Declaration which promotes a copyright framework that fosters creativity, innovation, education, competitiveness and access to culture.
NEMO was founded in 1992 as an independent network of national museum organisations representing the museum community of the Member States of the Council of Europe. Today, NEMO’s members speak for over 30.000 museums across Europe, and foster European policies that help museums in fulfilling their role as keepers of cultural heritage by promoting their importance to European policy makers.
Julia Pagel, NEMO’s Secretary General, remarks that “copyright impacts on many aspects of museum work”, therefore “museums need to make sure to be part of the discussions about the new legal copyright framework”. Julia believes that “by joining C4C NEMO is among several institutions working towards an adjusted copyright policy, which goes along with the recommendations NEMO gave in its European wide study on museums and copyright”, and she is confident that “C4C will support NEMO in staying up to date with developments in copyright policies on the EU and national level”.
C4C welcomes NEMO and looks forward to a strong collaboration at the European and national level.
