Copyright issues

Copyright rules in the Digital Single Market must allow for Innovation
red-132  (2018-02-15).
This debate article concerns the Directive for Copyright in the Digital Single Market that is being prepared in the European Union. The draft proposal contains, among other things, a rule whereby a charge would be levied on whoever publishes a link to webpages that have been published e.g. by a newspaper. Our clipping library is an example of an activity that would no longer be allowed under such a system. The article discusses some of the negative effects that would result from the proposed directive.
