For the first time in nearly a generation, the EU will update its
copyright framework. This is a unique opportunity to reform and
modernise Europe’s creaking, outdated, ill-adapted rules. Activists
interested in taking up on this opportunity will get a crash course in
effective copyright activism at a workshop in Warsaw on 5-6 November.
To help prepare activists for the challenge facing all of us, we are
cooperating with Communia to organise an event and look for participants
for this two-day EU copyright educational workshop – the School of
Rock(ing) EU Copyright.
EDRi offers a stipendum of maximum 300 EUR to cover transport and
accommodation costs for up to 20 participants of the School of Rock(ing)
EU Copyright and the CopyCamp conference in Warsaw. Non-funded
participants will also be welcome, of course.
The School of Rock(ing) EU Copyright will take place 5 and 6 November in
Warsaw, following the CopyCamp 2015 event which will take place 4 November.
The goals of the School of Rock(ing) EU Copyright are to:
inform the participants on the current state of play of the EU copyright
provide the tools that can be used to campaign on national level;
deepen the understanding of copyright activists of the EU legal and
inform participants on how it is possible to influence decision-making
in the EU;
identify possibilities for sharing of resources and talents such as
translation and technical skills;
create networks (and develop existing ones) of civil society activists
to work together on common goals to reform
copyright, in order to have a stronger voice and avoid duplicate efforts.

brussels edri.org with the title “Application for The School of
