The freedom to create should be protected at the EU level.

Copyright laws should enable cultural practices that require the use and/or remix of parts of protected materials in accordance with fair practice, such as the use of protected works (e.g. historical or incidental footage) by documentary filmmakers for informational and illustrative purposes. Europe needs a new mandatory exception to copyright and other exclusive rights that allows anyone to build upon existing protected works for creative purposes, in accordance with fair practice. Where such uses take place in a commercial context they should be subject to remuneration.
