European Parliament Approves Controversial “Meme Ban”

The doomsday clock is ticking for European internet users.

Last night, the European Parliament approved the final text of a controversial online copyright law that would force internet platforms to filter everything users upload for copyright — including memes — and charge news aggregators to link to news publications.

The move comes after months of adjustments to the Parliament’s proposed Copyright Directive. Parliament members will gather for a final vote later this year.
