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.
Experts and activists have been protesting bills like this for years, but now there's a real risk that they could become hard law for millions of European Internet users. Follow us at @EFFLive to see what’s happening in the debate.
