Article 13 Adopted

Today at 12pm, the European Parliament voted on the controversial Article 11 and Article 13. The commission voted to adopt both. Article 13 has been voted with no amendments.

 

 

Some aspects of the law are now up to the individual countries. The adoption of Article 13 sets a dangerous precedent. The tech mega-corporations already hold a chilling amount of power. Both economically, and in what information we see. With these laws adopted, they will be handing even more power over to them. They could be the only ones with the power to successfully comply.

While, yes, there will be ways to circumvent this, it is no less disheartening that such a heavy-handed measure could be adopted.

What do you think? What will the effect of Article 13 be? Let us know in the comments below.
