La RTBF prise en flagrant délit de mensonge sur le droit d’auteur

Article exceptionnellement en accès gratuit -> Abonnez-vous ici pour défendre une presse libre qui n’a pas besoin de mentir à ses lecteurs pour protéger son gagne pain.

La presse est sur les dents. La majorité des acteurs du monde de l’information cherchent à défendre la mort de la neutralité du net. Faute d’avoir réussi à fidéliser des lecteurs avec du contenu de qualité, ils se sont reposés sur les géants du web pendant des années. Ils se sont rendus esclaves et désirent aujourd’hui être payés mais sans remettre en question leurs chaînes.

Le Monde: Accorder à la presse des « droits voisins » en ligne : une question de vie ou de mort

Libération: Les gafa n’ont pas tous les droits

De quoi on parle ?

Comme l’explique Contrepoints:

Le problème a été soulevé il y a quelques jours par différentes figures proéminentes d’Internet (de Tim Berners-Lee à Vinton Cerf en passant par Jimmy Wales ou Mitch Kapor) qui se sont inquiétées, dans une lettre ouverte disponible en ligne, de ce que ces nouvelles productions bureaucratiques risquaient d’avoir des effets de bords… gênants :

By requiring Internet platforms to perform automatic filtering all of the content that their users upload, Article 13 takes an unprecedented step towards the transformation of the Internet from an open platform for sharing and innovation, into a tool for the automated surveillance and control of its users.
En demandant aux plateformes internet de réaliser un filtrage automatique de tous les contenus que leurs utilisateurs téléversent, l’Article 13 fait un pas sans précédent vers la transformation de l’Internet d’une plate-forme ouverte de partage et d’innovation en un outil de surveillance et de contrôle automatisé de ses utilisateurs.

En effet, si l’intention de départ des parlementaires européens était de lutter contre les méchantes plateformes de partage de fichiers (musique, cinéma, vidéos, j’en passe), la rédaction des articles a vite tourné à la fête à la saucisse où chacun s’est semble-t-il employé avec ardeur à élargir le rayon d’action de la régulation proposée.

Bilan : n’importe quelle image, n’importe quel texte un tant soit peu détourné tombe sous le coup d’une loi qui aboutirait, dans sa lecture stricte, à sanctionner à peu près tout ce qui fait la culture internet, mèmes en premiers, en reportant la responsabilité de la publication de ces images sur la plateforme elle-même et non sur l’utilisateur qui l’a chargée…

Pourquoi la RTBF ment ?

Dans son article sur le sujet, le service public belge nous explique qu’il y a 2 côtés:

Les gentils du monde culturel et des éditeurs de presse.
Les méchants GAFA qui ne veulent que tuer les premiers.

Or non, il n’y a pas que les méchants GAFA (Google Apple Facebook Amazon) qui veulent tuer cet article 13.

Prenez La quadrature du net, elle combat la toute puissance des GAFA depuis des années mais à la fois considère que cet article 13 est un danger mortel pour internet. Un point de vue totalement étouffé par la majorité de la presse.

Voici une tribune signée par des centaines de personnalités qui cherchent à protéger l’invention la plus révolutionnaire de l’histoire de l’humanité…

INTERNET.

Article 13 of the EU Copyright Directive Threatens the Internet
As a group of the Internet’s original architects and pioneers and their successors, we write
to you as a matter of urgency about an imminent threat to the future of this global
network.
The European Commission’s proposal for Article 13 of the proposed Directive for
Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive was well-intended. As creators ourselves,
we share the concern that there should be a fair distribution of revenues from the online
use of copyright works, that benefits creators, publishers, and platforms alike.
But Article 13 is not the right way to achieve this. By requiring Internet platforms to
perform automatic filtering all of the content that their users upload, Article 13 takes an
unprecedented step towards the transformation of the Internet from an open platform for
sharing and innovation, into a tool for the automated surveillance and control of its users.
Europe has been served well by the balanced liability model established under the
Ecommerce Directive, under which those who upload content to the Internet bear the
principal responsibility for its legality, while platforms are responsible to take action to
remove such content once its illegality has been brought to their attention. By inverting this
liability model and essentially making platforms directly responsible for ensuring the
legality of content in the first instance, the business models and investments of platforms
large and small will be impacted. The damage that this may do to the free and open
Internet as we know it is hard to predict, but in our opinions could be substantial.
In particular, far from only affecting large American Internet platforms (who can well
afford the costs of compliance), the burden of Article 13 will fall most heavily on their
competitors, including European startups and SMEs. The cost of putting in place the
necessary automatic filtering technologies will be expensive and burdensome, and yet those
technologies have still not developed to a point where their reliability can be guaranteed.
Indeed, if Article 13 had been in place when Internet’s core protocols and applications were
developed, it is unlikely that it would exist today as we know it.
The impact of Article 13 would also fall heavily on ordinary users of Internet platforms—
not only those who upload music or video (frequently in reliance upon copyright
limitations and exceptions, that Article 13 ignores), but even those who contribute photos,
text, or computer code to open collaboration platforms such as Wikipedia and GitHub.
Scholars also doubt the legality of Article 13; for example, the Max Planck Institute for
Innovation and Competition has
written
that “obliging certain platforms to apply
technology that identifies and filters all the data of each of its users before the upload on the publicly available services is contrary to Article 15 of the InfoSoc Directive as well as the
European Charter of Fundamental Rights.”
One of the particularly problematic provisions of Article 13 as originally proposed by the
Commission, and in the compromise texts put forward by the Council and the Parliament,
is that none of these versions of the text would provide either clarity or consistency in their
attempts to define which Internet platforms would be required to comply with the
provision, and which may be exempt. The resulting business uncertainty will drive online
platforms out of Europe and impede them from providing services to European
consumers.
We support the consideration of measures that would improve the ability for creators to
receive fair remuneration for the use of their works online. But we cannot support Article
13, which would mandate Internet platforms to embed an automated infrastructure for
monitoring and censorship deep into their networks. For the sake of the Internet’s future,
we urge you to vote for the deletion of this proposal.
