Slovačke snimateljice i snimatelji poslali su otvoreno pismo podrške i pridružili se globalnoj potpori borbi hrvatskih kolega za očuvanjem statusa ko-autora. Hvala prijatelji.
Pismo prenosimo u cijelosti.
Dear Mario Sablic,
We have been informed that Croatian State Intellectual Property Office has opened public debate about changes in Law of Copyright and Related Rights. In part of their proposition, cinematographers are no longer recognised as co—authors of the movie.
Association of Slovak Cinematographers ASK is fully supporting Croatian Cinematographers Society HFS in fight for their authorship rights.
Cinematographers are considered to be the authors of the visual aspect of a movie. Their creative intellectual activity is one of main aspects in the making of the audiovisual work.
We believe that in this matter cinematographers are united all over the world.
