It's been few days but I haven't seen threads about it on GGD.

Last month, the EU Committee on Legal Affairs (which somehow works out to the initialism JURI) voted in favor of a new copyright reform plan called the EU Copyright Directive, sending it to a parliamentary vote. On its face, the idea of copyright reform is a good idea considering how old many governments' legislation on the subject is, but two parts of the plan—Article 11 and Article 13—were a bit draconian in their perspective. Thankfully, the European Parliament has sent the whole idea back to be reworked.

In a surprisingly pleasant twist for European-residing citizens of the internet, the bundle of copyright laws has voted down by parliament, sending the whole plan back for re-examination. It's possible (and likely) that the lobbyists and regulators that brought the bill initially could attempt another vote in the future, but it appears that most parliamentary representatives actually seem to understand how harmful these particular regulations would have been.

Well obviously.

The lobby were strong enough to push the reform to the vote but deputies has been wise. 

However not everything in this reform was bad so I'm hyped about what they'll propose with the 2nd version of it. Hopefully they go less extreme.

Last minute amendment to the resubmitted bill: "Internet is deleted in EUrope thx"
