On 2 July, over 145 organisations sent this open letter [PDF] on the EU copyright reform to the Members of the European Parliament ahead of the 5 July plenary vote on the JURI mandate which was granted on 20 June. During this vote, the European Parliament plenary will have to endorse or not the mandate granted to Rapporteur MEP Axel Voss by the Legal Affairs Committee (JURI) to enter into trilogue negotiations on the copyright reform with the Council.
