Commission Reply Fails to Address Stakeholder Concerns

C4C finally got a reply to the letter we sent the European Commission earlier this year raising concerns about transparency and fairness in the Licensing Europe stakeholder dialogue workshops. Unfortunately, the response (click on the picture below for a full-size display) did little to address our concerns. Beyond thanking us for writing, the reply did not address our concerns and shared little about the general goal of the Stakeholder Dialogue .And so, unfortunately, our concerns remain: we are disappointed by the bias of the stakeholder dialogue towards licensing solutions. And there is a lack of focus on legitimate ways to improve accessibility of information and content – of which licensing is only one mechanism.
