European Parliament Approves New Copyright Directive

    On March 26, 2019, the European Parliament approved a new “Copyright in the Digital Single Market” directive which holds online platforms directly liable for copyright violations of content uploaded by users.

    The EU Copyright Directive does not apply to non-commercial open source websites such as Wikipedia and GitHub, nor to works of quotation, criticism, or review, such as GIFs, memes, and hyperlinks to press publications.
