★ IT WAS PASSED TODAY 3/26/19 ★

More News Soon.

The EU is trying to finish negotiations with the The Copyright Directive but it’s not going well and Article 13 may not get approved for Article 13 and it may get deleted in February. We may all get off scott free! All interested parties are losing faith in the language for Article 13, and the entire situation is turning into a gigantic chaotic mess.

One of the difficulties is deciding whether small and medium-sized businesses would be excluded from Article 13. When Lobbyists caught word of this concession, they lost their collective minds.

This concession was created because members of the European Parliament who are voted in by the member countries are feeling the heat from the content creators and small business who know they will lose everything if this part of the Directive gets turned into a bill.

The Article 13 language has put the leaders of the EU in a tight position. They are under pressure by their constituency and by the movie and music corporations.

The entire Article 13 part of the directive has been a massive FAIL. This Directive should have never have been created in first place, and now the majority of the lobbyists representing the media houses have walked away except for one industry.

The Music Recording Industry is out for blood. Here’s what they demand. If you post copy-protected music on Youtube, they want the right to sue the content creator, but they want the right to sue Youtube as well. Now you can begin to understand why Youtube will drop all EU markets if this bill gets passed?

The music industry does not care who it hurts, and they don’t care about the vague language used in Article 13. They want their money, and they don’t care about the details.

The other lobbyists have concluded that the vague language is worse than the current copyright protections that are working now and so they have left the table.

What’s pitiful about this entire circus is that no one is fighting for the internet user. The whole system is designed for the corporation. It is by pure luck that Article 13’s language is obscure for all parties involved. Currently, the politicians are scrambling to fix language by mid-February. If they can’t do it in time. Article 13 is dead. If they do figure out how to change the style the vote for making it law will occur in March of 2019

THE BOTTOM LINE

— There is no solution
— There’s no software solution
— The copywriter owners don’t like it
— Small to medium business will be harmed
— Content creators hate it.

EVERYONE HATES IT

Remove Article 13 from the directive and go back to the drawing board. Rushing Article 13 will be a disaster for everyone. Hey EU, The pitchforks are not worth it.

Currently, Youtube is just sitting back and watching the circus playout. As you know, there has been the talk of increasing watch time and sub counts for monetization sometime soon. One of two things may happen.

If article 13 becomes law EU countries get dropped, and new higher monetization requirements may not happen.

If article 13 does not become law EU creators are safe, but Youtube may consider increasing requirements for the planet Earth.

Will the language be fixed by February or Is this the Article 13 end? If Article 13 is not approved in February we are saved but if it makes it, the article gets the final vote in March.
