Author Topic: Article 13 of the Lisbon treaty, the one that can break the internet in the EU!  (Read 190 times)

As the title suggests it can break the internet at the very least in the EU because it will destroy fair use completely and introduce a tax for something as simple as sharing a link.
It seeks to achieve this by making companies like google and facebook responsible if anyone uses even a snippet from a work that is not his/her own and thus completely original.

Not the Lisbon treaty, it's Article 13 of a proposed new version of a EU media directive. Also, there's a thread about this already - and it doesn't seem there's any vote coming on this very soon. The Commission might choose to wait with the final working out of this law until next year. after the next EU parliamentary elections.

Also, ultimately it's the member state governments and parliaments that would get the task of how to implement this kind of law and choose how to word it in their own codes of law. They are not really forced to accept the most far-reaching ambitions of a directive just because "Brussels said so".
