European Alliance of News Agencies

The European Alliance of News Agencies (EANA) is a federation of news agencies in Europe. The organisation was founded in 1956 and is based in Bern at the seat of the Swiss Telegraphic Agency (sda). EANA has currently 32 members (2015). EANA´s predecessor Agences Alliées was founded in 1924 and was active until the World War II when the activities were discontinued.[1]

According to its Statutes, the purpose of EANA is "to safeguard and promote the common interests of its members", "to secure that member news agencies can work as providers of unbiased news"[2]. EANA also states that it supports the principles of freedom of the press and shall strive to facilitate for member news agencies to work in accordance with these principles.[3]

According to LSE study of news agencies published in 2019, "because of their extensive embeddedness within national media systems, as well as their significant engagement with key stakeholders, news agencies offer a fruitful but neglected focus for a comprehensive and comparative study aiming to understand these structural changes in the contemporary media environment".[4]

Since 21 September 2018 EANA's President is Peter Kropsch, the CEO of German news agency Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa).[5]

For two years since 26 September 2014 EANA's President wass Clive Marshall, CEO of the British news agency Press Association (PA).[6]

Jonas Eriksson, the CEO of the Swedish TT News Agency was President between 2016 and 2018[7]

EANA offers each year a quality award to its members. In 2015 French news agency Agence France-Presse (AFP) and its Global News Director, Michèle Léridon, have been awarded the EANA Award for Excellence 2015.[8]

Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market

The Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market 2016/0280(COD), also known as the EU Copyright Directive, is a proposed European Union (EU) directive intended to ensure "a well-functioning marketplace for the exploitation of works and other subject-matter... taking into account in particular digital and cross-border uses of protected content". It extends existing European Union copyright law and is a component of the EU's Digital Single Market project. First introduced by the European Parliament Committee on Legal Affairs on 20 June 2018, a revised proposal was approved by the European Parliament on 12 September 2018. A final version resulting from negotiations during Trilogue discussions was presented to the European Parliament on 13 February 2019. If approved in Parliament between March 25th and 28th 2019, each of the EU's member countries would then be required to enact laws within 24 months to support the Directive.The European Council describe their key goals as protecting press publications, reducing the "value gap" between the profits made by Internet platforms and content creators, encouraging "collaboration" between these two groups, and creating copyright exceptions for text and data mining. The directive's specific proposals include giving press publishers direct copyright over use of their publications by Internet platforms such as online news aggregators (Article 11 also called the "link tax") and requiring websites who primarily host content posted by users to take "effective and proportionate" measures to prevent unauthorised postings of copyrighted content or be liable for their users' actions (Article 13 also called the "upload filter").Articles 11 and 13 have attracted widespread criticism and controversy from European and American parties, with fears that the directives would inhibit online expression by requiring websites to obtain licenses in order to link to news articles, and Article 13 would require use of content-matching technologies that cannot identify fair dealing such as parody. A petition has gathered more than 4.7 million signatures opposing the directive as of 18 February 2019, the most in history. Initial supporters of the directive, which included largely media groups and large publishers, reject these arguments with claims that a disinformation and astroturfing campaign was carried out by big Internet platforms. These large media groups and publishers, however, have had much greater contact between their lobbyists and MEPs than the technology industry. A group of major international media and music rights-holders initially supported the proposal, but flipped to opposing as it was finalized in February 2019. The International Federation of Journalists calls the current version "bad for journalism".
