C4C Welcomes the SHARE Foundation

C4C is proud to announce that the SHARE Foundation signed on to our Declaration which promotes a copyright framework that fosters creativity, innovation, education, competitiveness and access to culture.

The SHARE Foundation is a non-profit organization representing online media, citizen journalists and bloggers, human rights defenders, members of the internet community and all other netizens engaged in battles to keep the Web open, decentralised and free. It was established in 2012 to advance human rights and freedoms online and promote positive values of an open and decentralised Web, as well as free access to information, knowledge, and technology. The SHARE Foundation’s primary areas of activities are freedom of speech online, data privacy, digital security, and open access to knowledge and information.

Danilo Krivokapic, Director of the SHARE Foundation, explains why they are joining C4C at this crucial moment in the copyright reform: “Upload filters would seriously hamper our right to freely receive and impart information on the internet and would effectively make private online platforms the arbiters of speech”.

C4C welcomes the SHARE Foundation and looks forward to a strong collaboration at the European and national level. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact Caroline De Cock, Coordinator of the Copyright for Creativity Coalition, at +32 (474) 840515, or Bojan Perkov, Policy Researcher at the SHARE Foundation.
