[TheVerge]EU approves controversial Copyright Directive, including internet ‘link tax

Quote:
The European Parliament has voted in favor of the Copyright Directive, a controversial piece of legislation intended to update online copyright laws for the internet age.

The directive was originally rejected by MEPs in July following criticism of two key provisions: Articles 11 and 13, dubbed the “link tax” and “upload filter” by critics. However, in parliament this morning, an updated version of the directive was approved, along with amended versions of Articles 11 and 13. The final vote was 438 in favor and 226 against.

Google Fights In EU Court Against Ability Of One Country To Censor The Global Internet

Quote:
In a hearing at the EU Court of Justice, Google said extending the scope of the right all over the world was “completely unenvisagable.” Such a step would “unreasonably interfere” with people’s freedom of expression and information and lead to “endless conflicts” with countries that don’t recognize the right to be forgotten.

“The French CNIL’s global delisting approach seems to be very much out on a limb,” Patrice Spinosi, a French lawyer who represents Google, told a 15-judge panel at the court in Luxembourg on Tuesday. It is in “utter variance” with recent judgments.

It's still not over folks.

Big US corporations disliking new EU laws that they away some of their power, nothing new really. Complaining how much cost scanning uploaded content will cost... what a nonsense, they already scan everything users upload and censor it to their own liking.

With the massive centralization of internet services (software) same as has happened to companies making hardware, some form of regulation is needed. In an ideal world with many options the internet could remain with no rules but we are far from that and the amount of scanning, censorship, backdoors by corporations and their governments is crazy and present for decades.

How come YouTube has not been shutdown long ago for copyright violation is beyond me, any similar site that offers so much copyrighted material has always shutdown, only shows you how much power Google/Aphabet/whatever has.

Is the new law sensible or not, who knows, hard to even find it to read it.

France, Lativa, Bulgaria, Romania and Malta are the countries with an overwhelming majority that voted for articles 11 and 13
Denmark had a 66% majority vote against articles 11 and 13 so i think its time Denmark gives EU the finger and leave and i dont think Poland and Hungary are far behind

Google has massive copyright agreements with content makers, including the reasonable removal or co-opting of content that violates copyright. For example, uploading a song to YouTube results in the ad money going to the copyright owner instead of the account that uploaded it or a complete removal and a strike against that account.

Please remember that political discussion isn't allowed on OCN. Try to limit the scope of this to the impacts on the industry.

So, this thread has been quiet for a while. This happened today and I don't know if it changes much, or if it is just an inconsequential administrative step: https://www.consilium.europa.eu/en/p...he+digital+age

What gets me is: "Next steps
Following the signature and publication of the directive in the Official Journal of the EU, member states will have 24 months to transpose the new rules into their national law."
Sounds pretty official now.

Will this change much in the US? And should I throw some money at vpn stocks?

Denmark was among countries that voted FOR Article 13. Poland, Holland and Sweden were against.

it won't make any difference to the vast majority of people. It won't affect gifs, parodies or memes. In reality all it is doing is strengthening current copyright laws.

So if I lived in a member state that had transposed those rules into their national laws I could still post that old Navi gif on twitter?
It seems like a copyright violation. And the fuss I heard made it sound like the EU's member would be obligated to hold twitter responsible so twitter would preemptively filter my gif away to avoid trouble. And what about quoting and linking a page from another tech site? There's a lot of people from the EU on here that find a lot of stuff.
