Interview with Marian Harkin on copyright rules for Internet

March 26, 2019

Karen Coleman talks to the Independent MEP Marian Harkin about the vote today in the European Parliament on copyright rules for the internet that aim to ensure the rights and obligations of copyright law are applied to the internet.

The rules will mean that people in the creative industry such as musicians, authors, artists and news publishers will be able to negotiate better financial deals with major internet platforms that use their material.

Marian Harkin says the new rules should ensure fairer payments for those creating content that’s then used by internet household names such as YouTube, Facebook and Google News.
