European Podcasters Team Up To Lobby WIPO

european podcasters have joined efforts to lobby WIPO before their meeting in barcelona on 21. june.

We, podcast creators, producers and supporters of the global podcasting community, earnestly request that WIPO respect, acknowledge and include the following in any revision of the Broadcast Treaty:

– Broadcaster copyright cannot overrule podcast copyright or other licence

– Podcasting is not broadcasting and the two must not be conflated (forced together)

– The wishes of the creator regarding their rights in their work must be respected

– Creative Commons licences, GPU licences, “free forever” licences (in whatever form) are legitimate and must be upheld in perpetuity.
