Looming EU copyright rules – tackling Google news article scraping, installing upload filters – under fire from all sides

Andy J

I don't know where you get your Google from, but within the EU, Google doesn't put any adverts on the news pages it serves in response to searches. The situation is more complicated when it comes to Youtube because some copyright content is posted on official channels by the copyright owners and some is from individual users who quite frequently don't have permission (ie they come under the Article 13 auspices, not Article 11). Posts from either of these sources may or may not have paid advertising alongside or within their uploads. Youtube as a company doesn't post any content so wouldn't be subject to the Article 11 provisions.
