Quality costs. It’s as basic as that. If we want quality in journalism, we need medias and journalists who can take the time needed to find the right sources, to review relevant research, to confront politicians and others who are in power. Supplementary revenue from educational uses is important for the quality journalism that it so important for educating our youth. Classical medias today are pressured on the economy, and more than ever we need copyright rules in order to survive as critical, free medias. Giving up on copyright rules is giving up on making journalism that takes the responsibility of the press seriously.

Kvalitet koster. Så enkelt kan det siges. Hvis vi vil have kvalitetsjournalistik, så har vi brug for medier og journalister, som bruger den tid, der er nødvendig på at finde de rigtige kilder og lave den relevante research, der kan bruges til at konfrontere politikere og andre ved magten. Supplerende indkomster fra brug i uddannelsesinstitutioner er lige så vigtig for journalistikkens kvalitet som for uddannelsen af ungdommen. Klassiske medier er i dag pressede på økonomi, og derfor har vi mere end nogensinde brug for ophavsretten, der sikrer overlevelsen af kritiske, frie medier. Hvis man opgiver ophavsretten, så opgiver man samtidig journalistik, der tager pressens ansvar alvorligt.
