In one of the most contentious decisions in the European Union’s history, the European Parliament today voted to approve a directive that undermines Internet users' ability to share their work and creates new limits on their ability to link, quote, and critique the news.
The Parliament narrowly rejected (by 5 votes) debating the amendment that might have removed the controversial #article13 and #article11 from the Copyright Directive and then approved the unaltered text in its entirety.
The vote came after a weekend that saw hundred thousands of netizens protesting across Europe, and months of warnings against the directive by technologists from Tim Berners-Lee and Vint Cerf, non-profits like Wikipedia and OpenStreetMap, human rights experts, and academics.

The final vote on the EU #CopyrightDirective is happening THIS WEEK!

Dozens of MEPs are undecided on how to vote on the EU's disastrous #CopyrightDirective. Here's how to call them now, and how to tell them to delete #Article11 and #Article13! saveyourinternet.eu
This is the most controversial Directive in EU history. The petition against Directive's #Article13 is the largest in history, with over 5 million signatures, and protestors have taken to streets this weekend to ensure that MEP's know what's at stake! saveyourinternet.info/demos
#Article13 would require "copyright filters" that would check every tweet, Facebook update, shared photo, and uploaded video to see if they were similar to items in a database of known copyrighted works, and block it if they found anything too similar eff.org/deeplinks/2019…

Today, tens of thousands of visitors to sites across Europe will see them entirely blacked out in protest of the EU's #CopyrightDirective for #Blackout21.

Here's why:
eff.org/deeplinks/2019…
The #CopyrightDirective poses a dire threat to the future of the free, fair and open Internet. Sites are protesting in part because, as @Wikimedia says, this Directive makes the simplest basic actions of those Internet users—sharing and linking—suspect.

Under #Article11, the #LinkTax, text that contains more than a "snippet" from an article must be licensed and paid by whoever quotes the text—meaning countries could make laws that pass using as little as three words from a news story.

Chères autrices, chers auteurs,

Pourquoi ne vous êtes vous toujours pas bougé le cul contre la #CopyrightDirective ?

Ça vous convient de devoir payer une redevance à vos éditeurs ?

C'est dans l'#Article12, mais on peut aussi parler du 11 et du 13, c'est terriblement drôle...
L'#Article11 prévoit une taxe sur les liens vers les sites de presse et d'information.

Si Wikipédia est en lutte contre la #CopyrightDirective, c'est parce que cette taxe signera son arrêt de mort, ainsi que celui de bon nombre de sites de presse et d'information...
Et pourtant, combien de médias ont pris le parti de s'y opposer ?

@Telerama est à ma connaissance le seul grand média qui a eu le courage de s'opposer plus ou moins ouvertement à cette #CopyrightDirective, mais ce fut discret, et il est bien isolé.

New statement by #copyright negotiator @AxelVossMdEP revels real agenda behind #Article13. He says about YouTube: Platforms that make money by giving access to ©️ protected works should perhaps not exist at all. #SaveYourInternet
It’s astonishing that @AxelVossMdEP still mixes up copyright infringement and protected content. Patreon, Tinder, TripAdvisor all make money by giving users access to protected content, but not by exploiting authors! Every work is protected from the moment of creation. #Article13
Here is the source for the statement: dw.com/en/memes-could… #Article13 is clearly not about making Youtube pay more for creators. It’s about making sure that such platforms can’t exist and we go back to the days of good old television. #SaveYourInternet

When I was elected 5 years ago, after Germany had passed a lobby-drafted law that crushed small media & helped Google, I never imagined that opposing the same law at EU level would inspire the @EU_Commission to compare me to the Brexit campaign: medium.com/@EuropeanCommi… #Article11
But this is what it’s come to. According to the @EU_Commission anyone opposing this law, that academics, human rights defenders at the UN like @davidakaye and even the inventor of the WWW @timberners_lee warn against, is a mob. They’re insulting the greatest supporters of the EU.
Many people, the @EU_Commission complains, get their info on #Article13 on YouTube, where it’s all lies & short slogans. Guess what: One of the most popular videos is a lawyer explaining #Article13 paragraph by paragraph. The video is 50 minutes long.

Europe: What began as a bad idea has become an outright crisis for the future of the Internet as we know it: the #CopyrightDirective is headed for a final vote. There's never been a moment where your voice mattered more. #SaveOurInternet eff.org/deeplinks/2019…
Over four million Internet users have signed the petition against the Directive. Now, it's time to call your MEP directly and tell them #Article11 and #Article13 would be a catastrophe for free expression and competition online. SaveYourInternet.eu Text that reads: Article 13. They want you to believe that Article 13 is not about filtering content. #SaveYourInternet
Under #Article13, virtually every online community, platform, or forum will have to add copyright filters at a cost of millions.

Experts say this will turn the Internet into “a tool for the automated surveillance and control of its users.”

You did it!

European Internet users in key countries have been asking their governments to push back against #Article13 and #Article11 (copyright filters and the snippet tax).

Those countries just voted down the proposed text in the European Council.
eff.org/deeplinks/2019…
Net users in Belgium, Sweden, Germany, Luxembourg, Poland, and Czech Republic wrote negotiators, asking them to oppose #Article13 and #Article11.

All but the Czech Republic voted against going forward—tipping the balance decisively against the articles.

Now, even the rightsholders are turning against the #CopyrightDirective:

BREAKING: Council has failed to find an agreement on its #copyright position today. This doesn’t mean that #Article11 and #Article13 are dead, but their adoption has just become a lot less likely. Let’s keep up the pressure now! #SaveYourInternet
The trilogue negotiation planned for Monday has apparently been cancelled by the Council. There may still be a trilogue before the election, if Council can agree on a text later. I'll blog as I get more news. #SaveYourInternet #Article13
Copyright negotiations hit a brick wall in Council: Read which countries voted against on my blog! juliareda.eu/2019/01/copyri… This is not the end of #Article11 and #Article13, but it shows that we can still turn things around! #SaveYourInternet

In an hour starts what is supposed to be the last trilogue negotiation on #copyright. @AxelVossMdEP told us he’s prepared to make a deal based on completely new text that hasn’t been discussed. None of the shadows agreed with this, it’s irresponsible lawmaking! #SaveYourInternet
Yesterday, negotiators from across the political spectrum expressed their dissatisfaction with @AxelVossMdEP negotiation stile. @POLITICOEurope has more: politico.eu/pro/politico-p… #SaveYourInternet
Discussions among governments in Council didn’t go smoothly either yesterday, apparently. Whether there can actually be a deal in the trilogue negotiation today is still wide open. Expect updates during the break around lunchtime and later tonight. #SaveYourInternet

The fate of Europe's #Article13 and #Article11 are now being decided behind closed-doors. But many of EU's member states aren't happy with them -- including Italy's new government, who want them deleted entirely. eff.org/deeplinks/2018…
We wrote to key decisionmakers today asking them to consider rejecting these two dangerous copyright proposals, or place strict controls to prevent abuse by tech companies and rightsholders.

Copyright filters and new copyright-like powers over news snippets are being sold as a way to fix journalism and the European music industry. They'll fix neither.

Today Members of the European Parliament adopted three terrible proposals in the new #CopyrightDirective and rejected every good one, setting the stage for mass, automated surveillance and arbitrary censorship of the Internet. (1/6) eff.org/deeplinks/2018…
#Article13: the Copyright Filters. All but the smallest platforms will have to defensively adopt copyright filters that examine everything you post, and censor anything judged to be a copyright infringement. (2/6) eff.org/deeplinks/2018…
#Article11: Linking to the news using more than one word from the article is prohibited unless you're using a service that bought a license from the news site you want to link to. (3/6) eff.org/deeplinks/2018…

Our live coverage of the EUs Parliamentary vote on “Copyright in the Digital Single Market" directive—including #Article13 and #Article11—begins now. Follow us @efflive for commentary. This committee vote may be the last chance a democratic institution has to modify the bill.
What’s being voted on?

#Article11 of the proposed law would create a new quasi-copyright power that would let news organizations charge others for linking and quoting tiny snippets of their news stories—even when they describe well-known facts, like "Trump Travels to Korea."
#Article13 would require mandatory copyright filters on any site that lets users upload their content to the world. These filters would scan every contribution to the Web, and refuse to accept anything that its algorithms believe may be copyrighted material.

Everyone needs to know just how wildly dangerous the European Union’s vote this week could be for the global Internet, and the undecided members of the European Parliament must consider the massive worldwide ramifications of their votes. (1/24)
First, some EU lawmakers want to create a #LinkTax (#Article11)—a ham-fisted proposal that would punish those who use the Internet as an open platform for sharing. /2 publicknowledge.org/news-blog/blog…
Second, they also want to force sites to filter nearly all of their users' submissions against a database of copyrighted works. #Article13 would create a #CensorshipMachine so big it threatens to wreck the Internet itself. /3 motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/…
