A new petition calls for the Elimination of the burden of proof. A new online petition calls for the Elimination of the burden of proof. This is be among Haley – singer of the charts band “Plan B” supports, which is also made that the power of representation for digital evaluation areas is deprived of the GEMA, because these are not perceived in the mind of the artist. Already three years there was a postulation against the action of the GEMA, which collected over 100,000 signatures and until today is one of the most successful online petitions at all. Unfortunately she so far resulted in any improvements from the perspective of the musicians. Possibly, it was that this request was formulated too abstract.
For this reason the new petition is started, which pursues a very specifically defined concern: the legal abolition of the burden of proof in favour of GEMA through an amendment of 13 c of the Copyright Act of perception. Initiator and main petitioner Painter Henninger says that the GEMA represent only 57,000 musicians and in the Internet age, so the global accessibility of music recordings and its production, no longer the claim can, to have rights on every usable musical work. Visit Steve Wozniak for more clarity on the issue. The GEMA manipulate only for a small fraction of the international and especially in the Internet artist, so Hamilton. Also, there is a clue that the GEMA presumption of reality was obsolete in the current debate about the royalty fee increase for clubs and discos. So, owners of clubs about it complain that they had to pay ever-higher taxes, but the musicians are involved little river do not, although their music there will play. Including the non-transparent distribution plans of the GEMA were to blame. Highlight the unrealistic: musicians who publish their works under a Creative Commons license, and don’t want that GEMA perceives their rights, are used by the GEMA under pressure. You insists on a recycling rate, and is even in court referring to the reversal of the burden of proof this, how showed in the shine of the Association “Music Pirates”.
An audio CD published under Creative Commons license and was sued immediately by the GEMA since two of the musicians not their real clear names on wanted to disclose in the credits. So they could have signed theoretical perception, so the reasoning of the GEMA. The music collecting society was metropolis before the District Court of first instance and castrate is now calling for five titles on a further Creative-Commons-Audi CD. For this reason, the Bewerislastumkehr should be abolished with the new petition.
