National Media Briefing: Spain
On 23 March 2017, the partners in the FAIR INTERNET Campaign with the support of AEPO-ARTIS members AIE and AISGE held a Spanish Media Briefing at the Silken Berlaymont Hotel in Brussels.
Entitled “Will the reform of the copyright directive ensure fair treatment of Spanish performers in the online world?” the event featured contributions from renowned Spanish performers Nacho García Vega, Javier Campillo, José Manuel Cervino as well as from José María Montes of AISGE.
The event was an opportunity for the speakers to share their views on the current reform of the EU copyright directive and its impact on performers in Spain with the journalists in attendance.
