EU Copyright Changes On The Way

The greedy rights holders have "donated" enough "gifts" it seems.

Controversial new copyright laws have been approved by members of the European Parliament.
The legislation had been changed since July when the first version of the copyright directive was voted down. Critics say it remains problematic.

Phil Sherrell, head of media, entertainment and sports at law firm Bird & Bird said: "Rights holders will be delighted as the directive provides them with additional rights and should strengthen their ability to negotiate royalty payments from online platforms that use their work."

But, he added: "The devil remains in the detail; the next few months will see the EU Council get the directive into final form for it to be passed into law - potentially before Brexit - and there remain opportunities for those disappointed by today's vote to try to alter the drafting."


As always plenty of talk about protecting the rights of middle-man non content creators and little in the way of reform for overbroad copyright time frames, greed knows no bounds it seems.

Speaking as a UK resident.  Maybe we'll end up out of the EU with no deal.. at which point we'll actually be a sovereign nation again and able to make our own rules.. one can hope....
Blessed is he who expecteth nothing, for he shall not be disappointed.

I still have concerns about that side of things, remember the nice gifts "donated" to Peter Mandelsson, holidays etc to assist him in siding with the rights holders lobby ?

When we are "soverreign" how will we call such corrupt practices to book ?
