ZAGREB, January 4, 2019 – The Publishing and Printing Organisation with the Croatian Employer’s Association (HUP) said in a press release on Friday that it supported proposals and efforts of umbrella organisations of European publishers who want to use changes to the EU Copyright Directive to prevent the use and commercialisation of their online contents without a permission or an adequate fee.

“European and Croatian publishers call on MEPs to support a proposal to introduce the so-called neighbouring rights (or related rights), namely the rights of a creative work not connected with the work’s actual author, within the EU Copyright Directive, as it has already been done by four parliamentary committees.

“The European Media Management Association (EMMA), the European Newspaper Publishers’ Association (ENPA), the European Publishers Council (EPC) and the News Media Europe (NME) advocate the introduction of neighbouring rights saying that they will help authors to financially benefit from their work and prohibit others from using it unlawfully,” HUP said in the press release.
