MEPs from France who had staunchly backed fast-tracking the reform, were furious after the vote. According to the 11th article Internet sites will have to obtain a license from the copyright holder to use their content, which goes against all modern news aggregators and online services.
While proponents of the bill, such as Paul McCartney, argued that the proposal is meant to secure revenues for artists that would otherwise be lost from the unauthorized use of their material on content-sharing platforms like YouTube, opponents of the bill claimed that it would endanger freedom of expression and the public's access to information.
Some 40 votes separated meme-killers (278 members of the European Parliament) from meme fans (that's 318 votes), according to VentureBeat, but the matter might not have been settled for good.
Sir Paul McCartney is among those supporting the contentious legislation; he believes the change would safeguard the "sustainable future for music". Civil liberties campaigners and internet companies argued that it would lead to platforms like Youtube censoring uploads and possibly removing an excessive amount of content that they find to be copyright infringement.
The full chamber will then be able to debate the bill, before its rapporteur Voss is sent to negotiate with the Council of the EU - which represents national governments - and the European Commission. "MEPs asked to reconsider the proposal need to think about the impact their next decision will have on our free press and on the future of professional journalism - and what message they want to communicate to the world about democracy and fairness in Europe", they conclude. It would require companies to implement "effective technologies" to determine if user-generated content on their platforms violated copyright.
Reda said the result was a "great success" and called on those against upload filters and the link tax to "keep up the pressure" until the issue is revisited in September.
There is significant opposition to the reforms and the vote is expected to be a close-run affair.
