The Union of journalists has urged the DPR to deal with attack on the correspondent "For survival of the press giants of the Internet have to pay. Content created by mass media, and advertizing revenues are monopolized by Google and Facebook. Therefore it is fair to demand GAFA part of profit (Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon) as it is provided by the European directive under copyright" — it is said in the address which text was published by the AMNA Athenian news agency. The future of the press will be discussed in the European Parliament on September 12. This day European Parliament deputies will vote in Strasbourg according to the draft of the European directive directed to correction of a present situation when giants of the Internet collect the most part of information created by media and news agencies without financial compensation.
