EU Article 13: one year later

In this recent video, Dr. Patrick Breyer, Member of the European Parliament of the Pirate Party Germany, talks about where we are a year after the EU adopted copyright upload filters:

From the video description:

Exactly one year ago the EU Parliament approved the copyright reform including upload filters, that are required by “Article 13”, now Article 17. This means that the biggest protests ever for a free Internet have been simply ignored by many MEPs. Since then, a lot of things, regarding the copyright reform, have happened.

In this video, Dr. Patrick Breyer, MEP of the Pirate Party Germany, explains what has happened in the last year concerning the copyright reform and what chances we have, not to get any upload filters in Germany. More information about that can be found at
