Article 13: European Union, Controversial Law and Internet

Article 13

The Internet is going to see a big change in itself and that is going to change the way Internet is been working since its origin. The internet is about to change forever. The European Parliament has backed controversial changes to copyright laws that critics argue could fundamentally change how the internet works.

EU has backed the Article 13 or now known as Article 17 that puts a far greater onus on major tech platforms to stop copyrighted material from being illegally uploaded to their platforms. Jimmy, Founder of Wikipedia, has expressed his reaction like this in his recent tweet.

The proposal was opposed by tech companies, which warned they would need to build expensive content filters and stop linking to publications. Internet activists argued that the changes would lead to censorship. On the other side of the two-year battle were record labels, artists and media companies. They said reforms were needed to update copyright protections for the internet age and to ensure they’re fairly paid for content. This is the latest flashpoint between tech giants and European officials, who have taken a much more robust approach than the United States over competition issues, data protection (think GDPR) and tax.
