"Under Article 13, companies that allow user-generated content of ANY KIND would have to design some kind of machine-learning-based censorship system that used catalogs of known copyrighted works to check user submissions for copyright violations,"

It says nothing of the sort. Did you actually read it? https://tinyurl.com/y87eg7xv

Or if thats too much work : (note - 'appropriate and proportionate')

Article 13
Use of protected content by information society service providers storing and giving access to large amounts of works and other subject-matter uploaded by their users

1.Information society service providers that store and provide to the public access to large amounts of works or other subject-matter uploaded by their users shall, in cooperation with rightholders, take measures to ensure the functioning of agreements concluded with rightholders for the use of their works or other subject-matter or to prevent the availability on their services of works or other subject-matter identified by rightholders through the cooperation with the service providers. Those measures, such as the use of effective content recognition technologies, shall be appropriate and proportionate. The service providers shall provide rightholders with adequate information on the functioning and the deployment of the measures, as well as, when relevant, adequate reporting on the recognition and use of the works and other subject-matter.

2.Member States shall ensure that the service providers referred to in paragraph 1 put in place complaints and redress mechanisms that are available to users in case of disputes over the application of the measures referred to in paragraph 1.

3.Member States shall facilitate, where appropriate, the cooperation between the information society service providers and rightholders through stakeholder dialogues to define best practices, such as appropriate and proportionate content recognition technologies, taking into account, among others, the nature of the services, the availability of the technologies and their effectiveness in light of technological developments.


Member States shall facilitate, where appropriate, the cooperation between the information society service providers .

Those measures, such as the use of effective content recognition technologies, shall be appropriate and proportionate.

@sirhc desantis, What Article 13 "implies", is that people using copyrighted works must surrender the use of those works, unless they are properly licensed and paid for. Quoting the letter of the law outside of a legal court of law is a waste of time for all concerned. This is why there is such pandemonium over GDPR. Common people with no need to know about law, are being forced to read fine print, and one mis-crossed T, or undotted I, will land them in court with hefty fines.

Rather than speaking legalese, why not offer service to those in need of trying to understand this chaos?


any chaos to a business model is for those hosts who allowed their users to upload other peoples content. The use-first and care-about-permission-after-the-fact days are coming to an end

many hosts are going to have to change their business model. For creators this is a good thing


Content is always king. Everyone need to take care of content strategy for better results in Search engine results page.


The good news is that EU elections are coming up and the MEPs are vulnerable on this issue: breaking the internet is an ever-more-unpopular proposition, and the lesson from the ACTA and SOPA is that when internet users are roused to risks to their internet access, they can mobilise to sway lawmakers.


But Google just created that for YouTube videos...


Now the proposal goes to the "plenary" -- the entire body of Members of the European Parliament, from all 28 nations -- for a vote


I think google does something like that for youtube. Blokada apk
