The luxembourgish government has until the 7th of June 2021 to ratify the "Digital Single Market" directive (2019/790), which deals with copyright. This law will define new rules that impact the experience we have today!
The Chaos Computer Club Lëtzebuerg (C3L) is an organization that fights for freedom of communication and information, and is committed to the education about new technologies and data protection. We promote a creative and a critical way to deal with technology. As an organization that represents digital natives who believe in the freedom of creation and freedom of expression, we see this national reform as a chance to anchor civil freedom an civil rights in the law.
We imagine a world in which the citizen is protected while online, free to educate himself, to run a business and to take part in the democratic process. The recent exceptional situation showed us how important it is that our society has access to a robust communication infrastructure. But it showed also that many activities and security measures which are perfectly normal in the real life are not in accordance with the law in the electronic world.
