The Legal Affairs Committee of the European Parliament (JURI) adopted the proposed version for copyright reform

The Legal Affairs Committee of the European Parliament (JURI) adopted the proposed version for copyright reform, including highly disputed Article 13 as well as tax provisions in Article 11 of Copyright Directive. The biggest controversies about this reform were around the text of Article 13 that practically requires some form of filtering and monitoring measures from internet platforms. In spite of the strong criticism of this article from NGO and expert community, this text is going into the further legislative procedure. Even though it is still possible for things to change up to the final vote in EU Parlament, this would be very uncommon in this stage.
