Make your creative voice count:
Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) will soon vote on proposed new copyright laws (in the form of a new EU Copyright Directive). We expect that this will have positive impacts for visual content creators.
Certain internet platforms that display large amounts of content uploaded to their platforms will be required to be accountable to the copyright owners of that content. Because there are currently no satisfactory safeguards, you as a visual content creator aren’t easily able to be credited and paid for such uploaded copies of your work, while others profit.
Getty Images, along with CEPIC and others in our industry, firmly supports the proposed new Copyright Directive because we believe that without compensation, creativity and commerce cannot thrive.
