Kennisland is one of the initiators of the Create.Refresh campaign. With this campaign we are providing a platform for creators who don’t share the repressive approach to EU copyright reform that is pushed for by big rightholders. The ambition of our campaign is to inspire a new approach to copyright in the digital domain that protects the interests of all creators and users alike. You can find more information about our efforts to modernise the EU copyright framework here.
