Disagreement about copyright reform in EU Council
After the meeting of the EU Council and strong disagreement from ambassadors of member states about the text of copyright reform, the final stage in the process is postponed. There were 11 countries against the current proposal. While Germany suggested to exempt the application of article 13 to medium-size businesses with turnovers above €20 million, France strongly opposed this proposal. Many discussions were around article 11 and how to apply it. Finally, the spokesperson of Romania said that the council needs more time to decide on the copyright reform proposal.
