Call to Action on online piracy

On 7 September, stakeholders at an event hosted at the European Parliament, discussed the impact of online piracy of live events. Pearle* also participated in a panel discussion. Please read the press release on the following link for more information.

The event was organised by ACT, the association of private broadcasters. Together with sports organisations, they launched the “live content coalition” last year, an informal group of stakeholders bringing together the sports and live event sectors as well as broadcasters.

The aim is to add a new European legislative instrument to protect online events from piracy to the 2023 work programme of the European Commission.

To support our initiative, please sign our pledge by the 1st of October 2022.

How to do it?

Firstly, your organisation can sign the pledge. In this case, please write to to be added to the list of signatories.

Secondly, you can address the pledge to your Minister of Culture. In case they agree to support it, please do let us know so that we can their name to the list.

The text will then be sent to EC President Von der Leyen (and copy to office of Vice-President Schinas, and Commissioners Breton and Gabriel).
