Just say Yes!
A message from Jean-Michel Jarre
Jean-Michel Jarre got things moving on the eve of the vote with an impassioned video plea. Here's a brief note from the French electronic music icon:
Following the campaign launched a couple of hours ago, "JUST SAY YES ! / DITES OUI !", we are thousands and thousands of creators, European indeed and beyond, calling upon MEP's to hear our single strong voice pleading them to "JUST SAY YES !".
Regulation in no way inhibits freedom of expression, on the contrary. What differentiates democracy from chaos is the definition of rules that guarantee equality for all, a notion more than ever important in the digital age.
« JUST SAY YES ! »
- Jean-Michel Jarre
