End of the Cultural IP Month Survey!

 

We have reached the end!
We are delighted to have shared the Cultural IP Month celebrations with all of you!

As our last surprise we would like you to help us answer some questions! Please give us 5 minutes of your time and fill out survey!

"Cultural Intellectual Property Rights are Human Rights" is the theme of the Cultural IP Month and a mission we can tackle as a global community.With this first Cultural IP Month we created the premises for starting an EU Legislative Initiative Proposal.

This survey is the first step.
Between April 2024 and April 2025 we need our initiative to reach 1 million signatures from EU Citizens. But this is not only relevant to EU Citizens. International support from non-EU citizens is extremely relvant and powerful for creating system change!

🙌🏽✨Thank you wholeheartedly for championing this change!
