Maybe not quite yet. Unlike GDPR, this has some extra steps that could take at least to 2021.

And by then the internet could blow up, so don’t sweat it. ;)

It was nice knowing all of you back when you were still allowed to be on the Internet.

Re: Just in: Articles 11 and 13

It’s useful to compare that chart with the one breaking it down by political party. Julia Reda has one, but I can’t find it except here

All Greens and Pirate parties voted it down, for the most part, regardless of country. They would be in that orange part of the bar, I guess.

So, you know, vote sunflowers and Jolly Rogers. ?

Re: Just in: Articles 11 and 13

The Plot thickens.

A few hours later, the EU put out the official voting record which includes an astounding 13 MEPs who said they voted incorrectly. Ten of them said they meant to vote for amendments. Two of them said they wanted to vote against it. And one did not want to vote. As you can see in the screenshot below, everyone next to the “+” would have voted for the amendments if they had actually realized what they were voting on. All told, that would have shifted the vote and allowed for a vote on amendments. By a slim majority, the law would have been opened up to deleting Articles 11 and 13. In other words, whoever changed the order of the vote pulled a fast one and got the EU Copyright Directive approved… despite the EU Parliament not clearly agreeing on that. – Enough MEPs Say They Mistakenly Voted For Articles 11 & 13 That The Vote Should Have Flipped; EU Parliament Says Too Bad

If that’s true, that’s amazing. Whether or not someone’s pulled a fast one with rephrasing or reordering items, it’s still their job to actually look at what they’re voting for!

Colour me extremely sceptical about that one. In a high stakes game like this, most MEP would pay attention to what they do. Unless they are stoned or drunken or something. (and all sources for that claim of mistaken vote are tainted, imho)

PS – I for one am fairly happy that this legislation finally passed. There, I said it.
