Despite a clear and unambiguous call from 112 organisations from across the full breadth of the EU’s
cultural, creative and sports sectors, and from 107 Members of the European Parliament, the
Commission has not included a legislative initiative to tackle live content piracy in its Work Programme
As the Live Content Coalition, representing the organisers and distributors of live events across
Europe, we welcome the reference to our concerns, but we are disappointed that those legitimate
concerns are addressed through an inadequate non-legally binding recommendation. We strongly
believe this will not create the necessary legal incentive for online intermediaries to respond
immediately when illegal live content is notified.
