ACT writes to Council Representatives in view of the COREPER I meeting on Friday 27 April. On this occasion the Council will be asked to adopt a mandate for negotiations with the European Parliament on the draft Copyright Directive.

The current drafting needs to improve to deliver on the objectives of the Proposal. Consequently, we call on you to reconsider the draft text, to ensure it complies with international law and safeguards the fundamental right to intellectual property.
