A glorious team of volunteers and staffers of La Quadrature du Net are currently distributing the successfully crowd-funded, produced and packaged "Datalove USB keys" to evey Member of the European Parliament.

The keys are loaded with a magnificient library of movies, music and books to call them to urgently reform copyright and  break away with the failed repressive logic that harms our fundamental freedoms online, and our culture based on sharing, remixing and copy-pasting of works. Our cultural practices must be protected by law instead of being vainly combatted in attempts to defend obsolete industrial interests.

Mad beatz from Girl Talk will be the perfect soundtrack to read the books from Aigrain, Lessig, Benkler, etc. along with the proposals by La Quadrature du Net to reform copyright!

As a volunteer for the operation DataLove Keys distribution to MEP, Members of European Parliament (Eurodéputé quoi) , i feel like the operation is going quite well.
We have already distributed the key to more than 500 MEP.

We have some pretty good feedback. And honestly way more than i was expecting.

- Lots of MEP or their assistants have said to us that the DataLove Key is really nice <3 <3 <3.

- Some assistants of the MEP have been really enthusiastic with the idea of coming with this USB key, sharing movies/music/books with them, and bring proposition on how to reform the copyright in a way that will include and respect OUR use of the internet and OUR way to love Music and Movies and Books.
We even have some Assistant who went out of their office after they have tried the Datalove Key to say us the content were great and the idea really good.
Imagine that !!!
MEP and their assistants do are really busy persons. They have lots of works.
We knock on their door, we disturb them while they are working on urgent problem (it's always urgent).
We take between few minutes of their time to talk with them about the urge to reform copyright.

And after all that disturbing, they do tried our DataLove Key. They do like it. And find it this great to get out of the office and come to talk again with us !!! How unexpected !


- Our approach to come with actual propositions for reforming copyright have been really well appreciated, specially by conservatives ones.

- We also have some echoes that people are talking about our Datalove key between themselves.
We even have some assistants that were awaiting for us so they can gets one too.


Well, now it's time for me to go to sleep.
I'm exhausted. We spent the 2 last day walking, knocking on the door, talking, talking, walking, knock on the door, talking, talking.
Bye

It was great <3

I expected a far less enthusiastic welcome from the EPP deputies & assistants, and there were surprised, interested...I don't know if it will make them think about our proposals, but at least it is very motivating.
My back was quite broken, but I'm happy to have done this with the boys!
