European Parliament votes down copyright reform

Those providers would have to promptly remove the content upon notification by right holders since they would not benefit anymore from the liability exemption for their users' copyright infringements.

Various companies including Mozilla and Wikipedia have voiced their concerns online ever since the proposed "Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market" copyright laws became public, and it looks like some of the members of the European Parliament (MEPs) have heard those complaints.

As many as 70 computer scientists, including the creator of the World Wide Web, Tim Berners-Lee, 169 academics and 145 human rights, press freedom, and scientific research organisations join hands with Wikipedia in opposition of the proposed law. In particular, we are talking about news stories. Instead, though, publishers opted-in without receiving payment as their traffic would've suffered as a result. Copyright is a controversial topic with vested interests new and old.

Who can the European Union learn from? Filters, he admits, are a "fact of life" and used by many operators. Since user-generated content often contains music - some of which is either unauthorized or unmonetized - musicians and the music industry see forcing the internet giants to pre-screen or better police content as a big win. "But there is no substantial protection [such as human monitoring or notice and take down] of this sort in the Directive", he told WikiTribune.


"The Directive poses a threat to the freedom of the web and involves the use of special filters, barriers and access restrictions to the network", - said in a statement released on the page of the Spanish version of Wikipedia.

Opponents say two key articles in the proposal would have effectively killed off memes and other ways people share content online. "It is the end of exploitation of European artists on the internet", said Voss.

Although primarily meant to prevent the online streaming of pirated music and video, the broad scope of Article 13 could have covered any copyrightable material, including images, audio, video, compiled software, code and the written word. ZDNet's Steven Vaughan-Nichols argues that the law would "wreck the internet".

Such a move would require online platforms to employ a way to scan all content before it is published. "That uncertainty [is] intolerable".
