EU Parliament Adopts Controversial ‘Upload Filter’ Proposal

Postby MrFredPFL » Wed Sep 12, 2018 11:24 am

Story :

In a plenary vote, the European Parliament backed a slightly amended version of the original Article 13 proposal, one that would still result in an indirect upload filter requirement for many Internet services. Pirate Party MEP Julia Reda regrets the outcome of the votes. However, the opposition's fight is not over yet.

Two years ago the European Commission announced its plans to modernize EU copyright law.

While the plans initially received little mainstream attention, in recent months there has been an outpouring of opinions, warnings, and advice from both supporters and opponents.

The issue that grabbed most headlines is the “upload filter” language specified in Article 13 of the proposal.
