VICTORY: Blow To EU Censorship Machine As Article 13 REJECTED
Eurocrats suffered a major defeat in their efforts to censor the internet as the European Parliament sensationally REJECTED controversial proposals to censor the internet embodied in articles 11 & 13 of The Copyright Directive and are part of a range of measures aimed at creating a Digital Single Market.
Article 13, was rejected by 318 votes to 278, with 31 abstentions. The proposals will now be sent back to the drawing board and return to the European Parliament in September.
UKIP, backed by the Green group, played a leading role in forcing a vote on the proposals to actually occur. Eurocrats keen to get their grubby paws on our internet did want to effectively bypass the Parliament and send them straight to the European Commission. Gerard Batten MEP announced the news on Twitter and said he was “very pleased” that we have won this round and outlined UKIPs position for an international agreement which does protect the alternative media as well as ensuring fair recompense for the authors and creators of original works:
