Dark day for internet freedom: The @Europarl_EN has rubber-stamped copyright reform including #Article13 and #Article11. MEPs refused to even consider amendments. The results of the final vote: 348 in favor, 274 against #SaveYourInternet pic.twitter.com/8bHaPEEUk3— Julia Reda (@Senficon) March 26, 2019
This is an unmitigated disaster.— Cllr. Keith Redmond (@CllrKRedmond) March 26, 2019
Picture the GDPR nonsense on every website you visit and now imagine that by a hundred as you’ll be blocked by tons of sites outside the EU and have loads of restictions on sites inside the EU.
Why do they need to constantly interfere?! https://t.co/84nIcKKMrx
#Article13: Whenever a European political fight is lost, the national political fight (implementation) and the legal fight is only starting (especially with such a wacky law)... ???— Max Schrems ???? (@maxschrems) March 26, 2019

Thank you to the tens of thousands of creators and EU citizens who spoke out about the unintended consequences of Article 13. The amendment to delete A13 lost by a few votes, and could have gone differently. This is the beginning. #saveyourinternet https://t.co/07bsjVGVvf— Susan Wojcicki (@SusanWojcicki) March 27, 2019
European politicians have passed Article 11 and Article 13. These laws have good intentions, but they will have grave consequences for the internet. Article 13 means sites will have to scan all user uploaded content for copyright material and remove it https://t.co/B1ZTUdkW7j pic.twitter.com/S3bhH4JEMU— Tom Warren (@tomwarren) March 26, 2019

In one of the most contentious decisions in the European Union’s history, the European Parliament today voted to approve a directive that undermines Internet users' ability to share their work and creates new limits on their ability to link, quote, and critique the news.— EFF (@EFF) March 26, 2019
(5) The Copyright Directive makes publishes (like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, web forums) proactively liable for broken copyright. Copyright is often unclear and contested. To avoid being sued, platforms will respond by blocking access to material to European users.— Matthew Lesh (@matthewlesh) March 25, 2019
#Article13 would require "copyright filters" that would check every tweet, Facebook update, shared photo, and uploaded video to see if they were similar to items in a database of known copyrighted works, and block it if they found anything too similar https://t.co/UNA4G5b3xI— EFF (@EFF) March 24, 2019
Ok picture ye this, there's a man walking & he's turned around to look at a woman with an "awww yeah I like that" face. He's got "EU" written on him. On the woman is written "Article 13". Another woman glaring at man like "what the hell" & on her is written "the entire internet".— James Felton (@JimMFelton) March 26, 2019
Europe, over the past year:— Tony Romm (@TonyRomm) March 26, 2019
--New copyright rules that include some payment to publishers
--Toughest in world privacy rules
--New state laws on terrorist content/hate speech, EU directive coming
--Repeated privacy/antitrust enforcement.
U.S. in past year:
--None of that
One simple thing to fight for in national implementations of #Article13: don't ever enforce it until rights holders publish an open database of their protected works, so they can be identified. It must be a prerequisite as you can't ask platforms to guess what's protected or not. https://t.co/l13mGiR74X— Guillaume Champeau (@gchampeau) March 26, 2019
it is not an exaggeration to say that building a startup in europe just got 100x less appealing, let alone making services available here— Owen Williams ⚡ (@ow) March 26, 2019
“European Parliament's decision to disallow votes on individual amendments resulted from a voting accident that unfortunately cannot be corrected under standard EU Parliament procedures, yet deprives the decision of whatever little legitimacy it had left.” https://t.co/TvLo4xBCyA— Timothy Vollmer (@tvol) March 27, 2019
"Companies will either have to pay rights holders (read: usually other big companies) for any copyright-infringing content, or—and this is the more likely outcome—they’ll have to meticulously scrub uploads of any content that might cross the line." https://t.co/4PNB138xKE— Lil | Milktea ?

If you aren't sure how #Article13 will effect you as a creator or viewer of #Twitch, #Youtube and other video content platforms, this may help. And if you aren't from the EU and think this won't effect you, you're wrong. You may lose access to EU content.https://t.co/kity3Z7Lmn— FemmeFox (@FemmeFox) March 27, 2019

“[..] Most politicians have no idea about the troubles YouTubers face with copyright, or what type of content the typical YouTuber even produces.”#Article13/#Article17, a law to protect old media in a modern age, doesn't know new media exists.https://t.co/867Hv5zbML— Roderick Gadellaa (@RGadellaa) March 28, 2019

BBC says "sharing memes and GIFs will still be allowed under the new laws."
Yeah we'll see about that.
It's now up to member states to approve the decision. If they do, they will have two years implement it.
