    EU copyright reform

    why isn't anybody talking about this ?

    3 minute summary
    A proposal to reform EU copyright was presented by Günther Oettinger shortly before leaving his post as Digital Commissioner.
    The proposals would limit our ability to actively participate online to benefit the business models of media conglomerates: Upload filters on internet platforms, a “link tax” for news content and a narrow exception for text and data mining would curtail how we can share links, upload media and work with data.
    EU member state governments approved the plans (with slight changes) in the Council. In a surprise upset, the Parliament first refused to rubber-stamp the law, but later endorsed it with only cosmetic changes.
    Final Trilogue compromise negotiations resulted in a text that upholds upload filters and the “link tax” with only ineffective safeguards.
    Next, the Parliament will need to approve or reject the result in a final vote.

    What’s being debated
    Article 11: Extra copyright for news sites
    Will all use of journalistic content online, even when just describing a link, require a license from the publisher? Read more
    Article 13: Upload filters
    Will internet platforms where users can upload content be forced to monitor user behavior to identify and prevent copyright infringement? Read more
    Article 3: Text and Data Mining exception limited in scope
    Will a new EU-wide permission to conduct research using text and data mining be limited to research institutions only? Read more

    the EU Parliament just adopted it... This regulation will incite a priori censorship, since there is a risk not to censor, while there is almost none to censor. Hence an attack on the diversity of the expression which can hardly be conceived as a great victory for Culture. On the other hand an other accumulation of constraints will favor the current US leaders which alone will have the technical and financial resources to comply to this regulation, so increasing their domination. It's really a lose-lose decision for the UE.

    In fact I suspect that some EU authorities have the hidden agenda to favor the GAFA, because it's easier for these authorities to regulate the internet if it is completely dominated by a few big actors than multiple decentralized entities.

    i feel like i'm in the united states and all the legislations are made and approved by the lobbyist for the lobbyist -also i don't see how they will implement this on countries outside the EU - over Russia and others - or EU will have a censored internet and others don't - i don't quite know very well how they will implament this if they final approve the regulation
    but i'm scared most about the upload filters on wich will be implemented and how - also if they will penalise giants for users copyright infrigment i'm scared google not to decide that every filesharing stuff,torrent ,trackers.link,website affiliated to free stuff to be left out from the search engine just for them to be on the safe side

    the EU, like any corrupt (super)state, needs fake news and propaganda in order to survive - copyright issues are used as an excuse to implement heavier content restrictions - the masses (current and future voters and consumers) are supposed to read about, learn and speak about those things which are sanctioned by the globalist authorities - this is not merely about dominating some market area, it is about absolute global domination over all humanity and our mainstream politicians are already happily implementing such orwellian measures - this has been going on for many years now

    the 'giants' are in on it, they're just faking concern - this stuff you mention will not be completely restricted because it helps in creating new consumers and even as an outlet for youth rebellion


    Parable of the Two Birds

    Two birds, beautiful of wings, close companions, cling to one common tree: of the two one eats the sweet fruit of that tree; the other eats not but watches his companion. The self is the bird that sits immersed on the common tree; but because he is not lord he is bewildered and has sorrow. But when he sees that other who is the Lord and the beloved, he knows that all is His greatness and his sorrow passes away from him...

    Biggest Czech tabloid calls Czech MEPs who voted against Copyright Directive "traitors of Czech interests"

    https://www.reddit.com/r/europe/comm...eps_who_voted/

    ---------- Post Merged at 16:40 ---------- Previous Post was at 09:54 ----------



    This week the European Parliament voted in favor of the new Copyright Directive. While the Council has yet to adopt it, France plans to implement the measures within months. Article 13/17 will be part of a new anti-piracy law that will also introduce a national blacklist for pirate streaming sites, the French Minister of Culture announced.

    The European Parliament sent a clear signal this week when it adopted the Copyright Directive.

    While some MEPs state that they mistakenly pushed the wrong button on the close vote to allow changes to the text, the ultimate vote was clear.

    With 348 votes in favor, 274 against, and 36 abstentions, Parliament adopted the Copyright Directive, unchanged. There is still a small chance that negotiations could be reopened if the Council doesn’t approve, but that’s really the last straw.

    The French Government, however, is done waiting and is moving full steam ahead.

    In a speech at the Series Mania Festival in Lille, French Minister of Culture Franck Riester described the outcome of the vote as a breakthrough. Despite fierce protects, Europe stood tall and seized a historic opportunity to bring copyright into the digital age, he said.

    “Despite intense and unprecedented pressure from the tech giants, despite massive campaigns of misinformation on social networks, Europe has held up well. Europe has not yielded. Europe has resisted.”

    The Minister sees the Copyright Directive as an essential piece of legislation. It won’t change anything for Internet users, he told the audience, but it will change the lives of millions of creators.

    Article 13, which was confusingly renamed to Article 17 in the final text, will ensure that Internet platforms, YouTube in particular, will have to pay fair compensation to rightsholders.

    “This is the first step towards greater accountability of platforms; towards a better sharing of the value that’s linked to the distribution of works online, for the benefit of creators,” Riester said.

    “In the future, YouTube will have to correctly compensate the creators whose works are broadcast on its platform,” the Minister added.

    France could have implemented similar legislation without Europe. However, the Minister of Culture stresses that a Europe-wide agreement is important. Large Internet platforms can’t circumvent that by simply blocking a single country.

    With backing from the European Parliament, France now plans to move forward, without wasting any time.

    “I want us to transpose the Copyright Directive and enter it into force as soon as possible,” Riester noted.

    Most of the text will be transposed into the new ‘Audiovisual law,’ an anti-piracy law which the Government expects to present this summer. This includes including Article 13/17.

    Under the article, many for-profit Internet platforms are required to license content from copyright holders. If that is not possible, they have to ensure that infringing content is taken down and not re-uploaded to their services.

    While ‘upload filters’ are not specifically mentioned, that’s what most opponents fear. In his speech, the Minister doesn’t mention upload filters either. However, he does reference the Government’s “mission to promote and supervise content recognition technologies.”

    The French news site NextInpact reports that this mission will be entrusted to Hadopi, the National Film Center, and the Superior Council of Literary and Artistic Property (CSPLA). Interestingly, the mission letter is dated March 1st, long before this week’s vote.

    Besides transposing the Copyright Directive into national law, the French will also propose a variety of other anti-piracy measures in the new Audiovisual law. According to Riester, it will help to “relaunch the fight against piracy.”

    France has been on the anti-piracy enforcement frontline for years and was the first country to introduce a ‘three strikes’ system for file-sharers. Today, however, most piracy is streaming related, which requires a different approach.

    Since classic pirate sites are not going to comply with any laws, France will introduce a national blacklist to target the streaming piracy epidemic. This blacklist will cover clearly infringing sites, while making sure that these are not accessible through mirrors either.

    The final text of the new anti-piracy law is expected to be introduced this summer.

    someone conveniently forgot to mention the fight against genuine dissenting opinion and criticism of the establishment, the real reason behind this censorship campaign

    France will introduce a national blacklist
    their chinese partners in crime can provide tips on censorship topics


    there is however something potentially positive about all this: reducing exposure to hollywood propaganda by not consuming their products (certainly a difficult thing, since filesharers are basically digital audio/video addicts so this would be like going to rehab) and voting against mainstream politicians who are in bed (embedded) with the corrupt oligarchy

    Another blow to personal freedoms, and another law that will be used to censor, control, and manipulate... what's new these days
