The EU have just passed the copyright bill (preliminary vote)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So yeah, it's just been on the BBC News.


The European Parliament voted to adopt a controversial reform of copyright rules for the internet age, after years of intense lobbying by European publishers, cultural industries, major tech companies and digital rights activists.

The Parliament adopted the proposal with 348 votes in favor, 274 against. Proposals to delete the so-called Article 13 were not put to a vote.

These reforms mean companies will be responsible for negotiating copyright licenses will license holders.


Under the final deal, U.S. tech giants such as Google will have to negotiate licensing agreements with rights holders — such as record companies, collecting societies and media companies — to publish their content on YouTube and Google News, and scan its video-sharing platform to remove copyright-protected content that falls under these deals.

They've just had the first vote on the copyright reforms and it passed. For it to become law it has to be approved by European Ministers.


The text now needs a formal approval by European ministers but is one major step closer to officially becoming law. It will then have to be transposed into national legislation by EU countries.



Damn son, I believe there's another round of votes yet but I think we should know for sure by Friday if this will become law or not.
