EU-Copyright-Reform: Bibliotheken gegen Upload-Filter und Leistungsschutzrecht (EU copyright reform: libraries against upload filters and ancillary copyright)

The German Library Association (dbv) has entered the phalanx of critics into core clauses of the planned EU copyright reform. Thus, the association sees a contradiction to "professional ethical values" - both Article 11, which creates an ancillary copyright for press publishers on the Internet, and Article 13, which provides for a stricter liability regime for content uploads on platforms. The free access to information with a "wide range of knowledge, ideas, media content and opinions" is threatened.
