The Copyright Directive makes internet platforms liable for content uploaded to their sites. Companies like Facebook, YouTube and Google will be responsible for checking all uploaded content for copyrighted material, per Article 13 (renamed Article 17). And news aggregators will be required to pay for snippets that go beyond "individual words or very short extracts," thanks to Article 11.

This really ought to be bigger news than what we're seeing. The implications are huge. We already have copyright and fair use laws to protect publishers. As I understand it, this law is going to supercede those, and apply to images as well as videos. If so, how can memes and GIFs be excluded? And how are the tech companies supposed to enforce this? How can Facebook survive without allowing their users to post memes? NO copyrighted material on YouTube? So many questions here.

They will probably make users click something to ensure they are aware of the new rules and if they break them, they are gone, or banned. We will probably see quite a few users being banned once it takes effect.


I dont think enforcement will be a huge issue for them, look at network tv, the FCC manages to catch just about everything that conflicts with their rules, it should be about the same with this new law.

I really don't understand what they are trying to accomplish. Most US news sites are already being blocked in the EU, because of the EU's General Data Protection Regulation. I guess they are double downing on it. I suspect it will just lead to more sites being blocked in the EU. It just means it will be harder for Europeans to get information. This could end up being the end if the internet as we know it.

The US passing legislation is not the same as the EU as each country in the EU has to put in their 2 euros in order for it to become law.

...the EU's member states need to accept the Copyright Directive's text. Then, they'll have two years to implement it.
