In accordance with article 13 of the draft document, access content violates the rights of authors, can be blocked. "We will continue to fight for what we believe is their freedom and a fair use of their creative works".

The other is mandatory upload filtering, which would require online platforms such as YouTube, GitHub, and Instagram to install filters to prevent users from uploading copyrighted materials or seek licences to display content.

Interior Minister and League leader Salvini said "the gag on the web and on Facebook has been rejected in Strasbourg thanks to the League's No: they won't stop us". The proposed directive will "help assure a sustainable future for the music ecosystem and its creators, fans and digital music services alike". "Members have understood that the proposed upload filters and the "link tax" would unduly limit how users can participate and express themselves online and serve only special interests", she added. "These terms are being used by anti-copyright and pro-tech campaigners to try to hold onto the old world and avoid sharing revenues properly", the group said.

Update: The EU Parliament has voted against the controversial reform which will now be reopened to debates.

The protest is against the vote by European Union parliament's legal affairs committee which supported the reforms to the copyright laws.

Just after midday on Thursday though, a majority of MEPs sided with Cerf, Berners-Lee, and Fry, rather than with McCartney and Voss.

European Parliament President Antonio Tajani apologised to Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov, blaming the disturbance on a few MEPs who were "acting as if they were trade unionists".

"Our protests have worked: The European Parliament is sending the copyright law back to the drawing board".

This was a core concern of critics: the copyright proposal would end up hurting smaller publishers and consumers instead, as this happened when similar laws were enacted in Germany and Spain. They will vote again in another plenary session in September, meaning that three-way negotiations on the file will be delayed.
