Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] Our proposal on orphan works aimed to start delivering some of this openness, some of this change. I regret that current amendments would drastically cut back the most progressive elements of the Commission proposal: in particular regarding the commercial use option. If this continues it could be a big missed opportunity. The text must be quite clear that public service cultural bodies have the right to generate revenues consistent with their public service missions; including via public-private partnerships.
