All 751 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) get to vote on 26 March at 12h30 CET on Article 17 [ex Article 13] in the negotiated copyright agreement. Please note that in the final text that MEPs will vote on Article 13 has been renumbered to Article 17. However, MEPs will see the old and new Article numbers when voting.
THIS IS OUR LAST CHANCE TO OVERTURN THE EU COPYRIGHT REFORM
In September 2018, MEPs voted for a version of the copyright Directive which will indirectly lead to implementing upload filters on most of the services you use online. The European Parliament’s (EP) Legal Affairs (JURI) Committee Rapporteur, MEP Axel Voss, then started the ‘trilogue negotiations’ – closed-door ‘informal’ negations with the representatives of the EU Member States (Council) and the European Commission (EC). These negotiations resulted in a trilogue agreement on 20 February, 2019. Despite massive criticism, the text has been made even worse than the EP’s proposal.
