European Parliament approves #Article11 & #Article13

Kim Jong Un

The European Parliament has approved copyright legislation including Article 11 (a “link tax,” that requires web platform to obtain a license to link to or use snippets of news articles) and Article 13 (that will require a web platform to make their “best efforts” to obtain licenses to copyrighted material before uploading it to their platforms which is a change to the current standard practice whereby platforms would simply comply with copyright takedown requests).
This is the end of the open internet in the EU and it will do great harm to innovative thinkers and all the startups and internet companies based in the European Union. Medics and Patients will suffer because it will make it harder for them to make and share content. 
Please write to your parliamentary representative and ask them to fight this.
