  • EU copyright reform is coming. Is your startup ready?
    https://medium.com/silicon-allee/eu-copyright-reform-is-coming-is-your-startup-ready-4be81a5fabf7?source=user

    Last Friday, members of Berlin’s startup community gathered at Silicon Allee for a copyright policy roundtable discussion hosted by Allied for Startups. The event sparked debate and elicited feedback surrounding the European Commission’s complex drafted legislation that would have significant impact on startups in the EU. Our Editor-in-Chief, Julia Neuman, gives you the rundown here — along with all the details you should know about the proposed reform.

    ‘Disruption’ in the startup world isn’t always a good thing — especially when it involves challenging legislation. Over the past five years, as big data and user-generated content began to play an increasing role in our society, startups have worked tirelessly to navigate laws regarding privacy and security in order to go about business as usual. Now, they may soon be adding copyright concerns to their list of potential roadblocks.

    The forthcoming copyright reform proposed by the European Commission severely threatens the success and momentum that startups have gained in the EU, and it’s being introduced under the guise of “a more modern, more European copyright framework.”

    On September 14, 2016, the European Commission tabled its Proposal for a Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market (commonly referred to as the “Copyright Directive”) — a piece of draft legislation that would have significant impact on a wide variety of modern copyrighted content. Consequently, it poses a direct threat to startups.

    Members of the startup community are now coming together, unwilling to accept these measures without a fight. On Friday, members of Allied for Startups and Silicon Allee — alongside copyright experts and Berlin-based entrepreneurs and investors — met at Silicon Allee’s new campus in Mitte for a policy roundtable discussion. Additional workshop discussions are taking place this week in Warsaw, Madrid and Paris. The ultimate goal? To get startups’ voices heard in front of policymakers and counter this legislation.
    Sparking conversation at Silicon Allee

    Bird & Bird Copyright Lawyer and IP Professor Martin Senftleben led the roundtable discussions in Berlin, outlining key clauses and offering clarifying commentary. He then invited conversation from guests — which included representatives from content-rich startups such as Fanmiles, Videopath, and Ubermetrics. The result was a well-balanced input of perspectives and testimonials that sparked an increased desire to fight back. The roundtable covered the three main areas affected by the proposed reforms: user-generated content, text and data mining, and the neighboring right for press publishers.
    User-generated content

    The internet has allowed us all to become content creators with an equal opportunity to make our voices heard around the world. With this transition comes evolving personal responsibilities. Whereas in the past, copyright law only concerned a small percentage of society — today it concerns anyone posting to social media, uploading unique content, or founding a company that relies on user-generated content as part of its business model.

    The proposed EU copyright reform shifts copyright burden to content providers, making them liable for user content and forcing them to apply content filtering technology to their platforms. As it stands now, management of copyright infringement is a passive process. Companies are not required to monitor or police user-generated content, instead waiting for infringement notices to initiate relevant takedowns.

    New laws imply that companies would have to constantly police their platforms. As you can imagine, this would quickly rack up operating costs — not to mention deter investors from committing if there’s such a inherently persistent and high legal risk for copyright infringement. Furthermore, filtering technology would not exactly promote public interest or media plurality, as an efficiency-based filtering system would be more likely to result in overblocking and censoring (even if unintentional). This result is counter to the expressed aims of the reform.

    “Having this necessity to add filtering technology from the start would kill any innovation for new startups, which is the reason why we’re all here and this economy is booming and creating jobs,” said Fabian Schmidt, Founder of Fanmiles. “The small companies suddenly cannot innovate and compete anymore.”

    Text and data mining

    The proposed reform also blocks startups from using text and data mining technology, consequently preventing the rich kind of data analysis that has added value and yielded deeper insights for growing startups. Copyright law today accounts for lawful access and consultation, however not for the automated process of reading and drawing conclusions. The scraping and mining of freely available texts could give rise to complex, costly legal problems from the get-go — problems that not even the most prudent founder teams could navigate (unless they work to the benefit of research institutions, which are exempt from the measure).

    What kind of message does this send out to new startups? As with laws dealing with user-generated content, these measures don’t entice entrepreneurs to turn their seeds of ideas into profitable companies. Nor do they get VCs jumping to invest. Data input from mining and scraping suddenly gives rise to a huge legal issue that certainly does not benefit the public interest.

    Senftleben reminded the group in Berlin that these types of legislation normally take several years to implement, and that the proposed policy could have amplified effects down the road as the role of data mining increases. “If this legislation is already limiting now, who knows what kind of text and data mining will be used in ten years and how it will play in,” he said.
    Neighboring right for press publishers

    The third and final point discussed at the roundtable has gathered the most media attention thus far. It’s the “elephant in the room,” unjustly pitting established publishers against startups. Proposed legislation creates an exclusive right for publishers that protects their content for digital use in order to “to ensure quality journalism and citizens’ access to information.”

    Sure, this reasoning sounds like a positive contribution to a free and democratic society. But closer examination reveals that these publishers’ outdated and financially unviable business models are being grandfathered in for protection at the expense of more innovative content models.

    It’s not hard to see why this is happening. Publishers have lobbying power, and they are bleeding money in today’s digital climate. “I work a lot with publishers. Their position here in Europe is a little more old school,” said one of the founders present at the discussion. “Their business model and revenues are going down, so they’re going to fight hard.”

    Axel Springer, for example, is lobbying for greater protection; they want a piece of Google’s success. But the most interesting aspect of this measure is that it’s unclear how much value it would add for publishers, who already have rights to digital reproduction from the individual content creators employed under contract with their firms. A freelance journalist contributing to Die Zeit, for example, is already transferring digital reproduction rights to the newspaper just by agreeing to publish.

    The drafted legislation makes it pretty clear that content aggregating search engines would take a big hit when they would inevitably have to pay content reproduction fees to publishers. But the interdependent relationship between publishers and online search aggregation services makes this legislation unlikely to generate a meaningful revenue stream for publishers anyway: Publishers want compensation for snippets of articles that show up on search engines, and search engines want compensation for bringing attention to them in the first place. In the end, content aggregators would likely just stop their use of content fragments instead of resorting to pay license fees to publishers.

    It’s unclear how the proposed legislation could promote media plurality and freedom; instead, it seems to promote market concentration and monopolization of content publishing, potentially stifling free and open access to information.

    “I know two small aggregators here in Germany that have given up because of this,” said Tobias Schwarz, Coworking Manager at Sankt Oberholz in Berlin.

    What comes next? Turning discussion into action

    What is clear now is that copyright law has potential to affect anyone. Startups in Europe, especially, are at risk with these new reforms. As players in the European economy, they have not been present in the policy debate so far. Allied for Startups and Silicon Allee are inviting founders, entrepreneurs, and interested members in the tech community to come forward and make their voices heard. They invite contributions to an open letter to the European Parliament which dives into this topic in more detail, explaining how toxic the Copyright Directive is for companies who are trying to stay alive without incurring €60 million in development costs.

    “A lot of startup leaders have their heads down working on their next feature, without realizing policymakers are also creating something that can instantly kill it,” said Silicon Allee co-founder Travis Todd. “But if more startups come to the table and tell others what they learned, they will become more aware of these potential roadblocks and ultimately help change them.”

  • Publisher of Russian Forbes and OK! to Exit Russia | Business | The Moscow Times
    http://www.themoscowtimes.com/business/article/publisher-of-russian-forbes-and-ok-to-exit-russia/529546.html

    German publisher Axel Springer is withdrawing from its Russian business, Russian news agency RBC reported at the weekend, citing two media sources and a government source.

    A deal to sell an 80 percent stake to Russian publisher Alexander Fedotov, owner of Artcom Media, is in its final stages, with the unit’s CEO Regina von Flemming taking the remaining 20 percent, RBC said.

    An Axel Springer spokeswoman declined to comment and an Artcom Media representative was not available for immediate comment on Sunday.

    The Springer subsidiary publishes the Russian editions of Forbes and OK! magazines, among others.

    Springer’s chief executive Mathias Doepfner said in November that the Russian unit was not significant and the company was reviewing its strategy in view of new media laws in the country.


  • Der Terror-Schock - wie reagieren wir auf die neuen Anschläge ? | Das Erste - Günther Jauch
    http://daserste.ndr.de/guentherjauch/Der-Terror-Schock-wie-reagieren-wir-auf-die-neuen-Anschlaege,guentherja

    L’émission politique la plus populaire d’Allemagne communique les points de vue du chef des éditions Axel Springer et du ministre de l’intérieur. Pour nous faire comprendre l’autre côté la journaliste Souad Mekhennet explique les terroristes. Je viens de décrire pour une amie pourquoi l’émission sort de l’ordinaire.

    J’ai aussi regardé l’émission de Günther Jauch. Depuis mercredi la tentative de comprendre les mobiles des gens qui se prononcent occupe une bonne partie de mon temps. J’essaie également de préciser ma propre position par rapport aux événements tragiques et par rapport à Charlie Hebdo. J’avoue que la dernière édition que j’ai acheté date de 2006. Ils avaient cessé de m’amuser déjà avant et je crois avoir compris pourquoi. Mais c’est sans importance.

    Alors passons, je tiens à te dire autre chose. Le rôle de l’émission de Jauch n’est pas de faire de la pédagogie. Elle sert de plateforme aux invités qui y vendent leurs positions. Il est inutile d’y appliquer des critères moraux, c’est une arène de combat où il faut gagner ou mourir. Le résultat dépend de ta maîtrise des armes, dans l’arène télévisée on croise les épées d’un discours formaté.

    J’ai eu l’impression que Mathias Döpfner, le patron des éditions Axel Springer, ne comprend strictement rien à l’islam. Ce n’était pas grave parce qu’il n’était pas présent pour se prononcer à ce propos. Il était là pour donner le rôle d’un éditeur de journaux serein face à la menace terroriste. C’était une belle réussite, pas étonnant, c’est ce qu’il fait tous les jours depuis des années. Autrement il n’a strictement rien apporté, il n’a fourni aucune position ou information d’importance. Il nous a parlé des USA mais sans évoquer des choses qui nous concernent. Par son interprétation du bon patron sympatique Mathias Döpfner a gagné son combat, il t’a conquis. Autrement je le trouvais fatigué et vielli.

    La jeune femme arabe par contre n’a pas réussi à faire passer son message. Souad Mekhennet n’a pas triomphé dans les arènes de Schöneberg. Son message était plus difficile à faire passer vu qu’il contenait des informations extrordinaires qu’on n’entend pas souvent ici. Je te donne l’exemple d’une histoire que même Döpfner n’a pas tout de suite saisi alors que c’est un homme cultivé et intelligent :
    Quand Souad Mekhennet a montré des caricatures d’arabes dans CH à des juifs survivant des camps nazis ils lui disaient que les images leur rappelaient les caricatures de juifs dans les torchons de propagande nazie d’avant guerre. Elle avait du mal à expliquer pourquoi elle racontait cette histoire. Pour un public qui ne suit pas tous les jours de près le conflit israelo-palestinien il faut expliquer le contexte du message pour lui permettre d’y découvrir les couches significatives et les multiples perspectives. Impossible, ce n’est pas prévu dans la conception de l’émission. Raté, toi aussi, tu l’as mal pris. La spécialiste des musulmans a perdu le tournoi.

    L’acteur le plus impressionnant était le ministre de l’intérieur. Le charmant Monsieur de Maizière nous a fait sentir la chaleur humaine qui regnait entre les chefs d’état que FH avait invité. Il s’est calmenent présenté comme professionnel de la sécurité et il a communiqué qu’on était mieux protégé en Allemagne qu’en France parce que ses équipes collaborent étroitement avec nos partenaires britanniques et transantlantiques à savoir CIA, NSA, MIx. et consorts. Il nous a promis d’améliorer encore notre protection par une nouvelle loi qui permettra à l’administration d’interdire aux Allemands de voyager à l’étranger. Comme ca les islamistes auront plus de mal à se rendre dans les zones de combat, il accéderont alors plus difficilement aux formations militaires.

    Je retiens de tous ces discours plus ou moins ambigus qu’on est en train de rétablir le mur, mais cette fois autour de toute l’Allemagen et dans une version virtuelle. C’est la seule information significative que je retiens de l’émission et, sans rire, elle m’effraie. Les murs n’ont jamais protégé qui que ce soit contre quoi que ce soit et leur construction s’est toujours faite à un prix très élevé en vie humaines. Ce développement nous met tous en danger parce qu’on risque de se retrouver dans un univers de surveillance et de soupcon généralisé.

    Je ferai appel à ta solidarité quand on lancera une campagne contre cette réstriction de notre liberté.

    • C’est comme si un juif / une juive ne pouvait pas être allemand/e en même temps. Le mot « juif » ne définit pas la nationalité d’une personne mais sa religion, à la limite encore sa « culture ». La phrase témoigne de l’influence zioniste au sein des éditions Axel Springer.

    La discussion à propos du pouvoir de Google n’est donc pas une sempiternelle théorie de conspiration. Vous-mêmes évoquez le nouveau pouvoir du décideur, du propriétaire et de l’utilisateur. En ce qui concerne l’utilisateur, je n’en suis pas aussi certain sur le long terme. Dans ce domaine, l’impuissance succède rapidement au pouvoir. Et c’est précisément pour cette raison que nous devons ouvrir maintenant cette discussion dans l’intérêt d’un écosystème sain de l’économie numérique à long terme. Cela touche à la concurrence. Et pas seulement économique, mais également à la politique. Cela touche à nos valeurs, notre conception de l’homme, notre ordre social mondial et – à notre avis – avant tout à l’avenir de l’Europe.

    Offener Brief an Eric Schmidt Warum wir Google fürchten

    16.04.2014 · Zum ersten Mal bekennt hier ein deutscher Manager die totale Abhängigkeit seines Unternehmens von Google. Was heute die Verlage erleben, ist ein Vorbote: Bald gehören wir alle Google. Ein Offener Brief an Eric Schmidt.

    A German business model
    April 16, 2014 by Jeff Jarvis
    http://buzzmachine.com/2014/04/16/german-business-model

    The essence of that business model, as practiced especially by German and sometimes French legacy publishers, is to stomp their feet like pouty kindergartners missing a turn at kickball, whining “that’s not fair” and yelling that everything wrong on this playground is the fault of another kid, then running to hide behind the skirt of the teacher. That is what Döpfner does here, demonizing Google (and Mark Zuckerberg while he’s at it) for numerous perceived sins I’ll explore below and — here’s the real agenda — demanding that the European Commission rescue the dinosaurs (his word) with regulation.

    Au fond Google et Axel Springer se disputent la place de celui qui profite au maximum de nous.
