8 - Software Manifesto - Implement Article 4 of the EU Enforcement Directive

Mar 2015

As we run up to the general election in May I am delighted to launch FAST ten point Software Manifesto that focuses on three key areas: enforcement, deterrence and accountability. Over the next two weeks we will publish one point per day and welcome feedback and discussion.

Implement Article 4 of the EU Enforcement Directive

Furthermore FAST is calling on all political parties to support its call to give organisations such as FAST Representative Rights under Article 4 of the EU Enforcement Directive. This would allow these organisations such as FAST to act directly on behalf of software vendors, including to protect their IP rights as a representative collective allowing publishers to continue unimpeded in their commercial activities and not to be the aggressor necessarily in pursuit of a pirate.
