AD will protect digital rights
Knowledge has never been as accessible as it is today through the technological revolution of the internet AD Chairperson Michael Briguglio said in a press conference this morning.
The AD Chairperson continued that internet is a technology with limitless potential not only regarding creativity but also has democratic potential in the creation of active global citizenship and for these reasons AD believes that a legal framework is necessary to safeguard privacy and digital rights based on free access to the internet.
The AD is committed to modernise and reform the copyright law and strike a fair balance between the interests of copyright owners and users in a bid to strengthen the rights of the copyright owners and artists against the exploitation and marketing of their content whilst providing adequate financial compensation for the free use of their copyrighted content on the Internet.
“AD was on the forefront against the ACTA legislation in 2012. AD in parliament will ensure that digital rights of internet users are protected against such legislation in the future,” Michael Brigulio concluded.
