Every day, every hour the media industry, hand in hand with their creatives, make enormous investments to produce content according to the journalistic standards of truth and reflection of reality as varied, differentiated and complex it is. Media industry, press is a determining factor in the formation of public opinion. However this content has to be based on financial viability. Content providers – publishers and creative copyright holders – must therefore be commensurately remunerated, based on the value of their content. The enforcement of this principle is the responsibility, the serving obligation of Corint Media, acting as trustee to all kinds of rightholders.
We believe a Democracy needs free Media
Free media constitutes the fundamental basis of a functioning democracy. Citizens need access to a variety of independent and trustworthy sources of information and can form an opinion enabling them to participate and act in a lively democracy. Intellectual property – as the core of any provision of information – is particularly important in this constitutional structure. Copyright holders, creatives and entrepreneurs can only meet its challenge if they are appropriately remunerated for the use of their work by others.
