EU internet industry pushes for lighter touch in copyright directive reform

Tuesday 20 November 2018 | 14:09 CET | News
Internet service providers in Europe have submitted comments to the EU institutions calling for a compromise on proposed changes to the EU copyright directive. They want news publishers to be able to opt out of the proposed compensation regime for online aggregators, as well as changes to limit the liability of online content-sharing platforms. The comments come ahead of the next trilogue between the European Commission, Parliament and Council on the legislation on 27 November.
