UK won’t adopt EU copyright laws that could hit YouTube, says minister

Divisive EU copyright reforms that could affect the likes of YouTube will not be adopted in the UK, a Government minister has said.

The changes are aimed at making tech giants more responsible for paying creatives, musicians and news outlets more fairly for their work online in the digital age.

But with Brexit approaching, it had been unclear whether the UK would choose to implement the Copyright Directive.

According to Universities, Science, Research and Innovation Minister Chris Skidmore, there are “no plans” for it to be taken on.
