Screenwriters and directors formed a lobby group that advocate proportional remuneration

Amidst discussions related to the EU copyright reform, a group of 95 screenwriters and directors formed a lobby group. The group advocates for proportional remuneration in article 14. They addressed their proposals in a letter stating that audiovisual authors should be able to live off their work. The group thinks that article 14 needs further specification in order to provide real fair and proportionate remuneration. They ask for explicit reference to ‘proportionate remuneration’ in article 14, explicit references to the different collection mechanisms in member states, and lump sum payments to become exceptions.
