U.S. Internet giants such as Google and Facebook fought a public campaign against the legislation. Officials will sign the new rules - as well as the new rules facilitating access to online TV and radio content across borders - into law on April 17, at the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

"Information society service providers, like news aggregators or media monitoring services, will be required to honour the new press publishers" right, but there will be limitations to what the new right protects.

Internet users have protested fearing the bill would make "upload filters" mandatory on all social platforms, barring users from putting up copyrighted content (which could be anything from a meme to a song used in the background).

Still, the directive allows users to generate and upload content freely for purposes of quotation, criticism, review, caricature, parody and pastiche.

Meanwhile, the Federal Trade Commission also sued Qualcomm in January 2017 ; that case was finally heard in January 2019 . The Trump administration is said to be interested in settling to support Qualcomm as a counter-balance to Chinese rivals.


"We believe that the Directive in its current form is a step back for the Digital Single Market rather than a step forward".

According to the EC, the new Directive will boost high-quality journalism in the EU and offer better protection for European authors and performers.

In addition, Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said that the adoption would "guarantee fair remuneration for creators, strong rights for users and responsibility for platforms". Platforms will now be forced to police copyrighted material through tools like filters.

The adopted directive includes articles 15 and 17. Google has already carried out experiments to explore impact of Article 11, which indicated a 45 percent reduction in traffic to news publishers which would be particularly bad for smaller and emerging sites. The unintended consequences of today's vote may affect us all in the future.
