In European Parliament yesterday, MEPs passed a copyright law that has critics saying it could spell the end of the internet as we know it. The law is intended to update current copyright law to keep up with the the digital age- But parts of the law are not so beloved by fans of online content.
Proposals to modernize the rules governing copyright in the Digital Single Market have been approved by the Legal Affairs Committee. These include Article 13, which will impose copyright filtering on digital platforms. The proposals still have to pass a plenary vote in the European Parliament.
