European Parliament approves online copyright reform

Tuesday 26 March 2019 | 13:53 CET | News
The European Parliament has approved the controversial reform of copyright rules for online content. The legislation increases the liability for internet platforms accepting content uploaded by users as well as provides for increased remuneration for publishers from online aggregators. The text still needs formal approval from the Council of EU states before becoming law, after which EU members will have two years to implement the changes in national law.
