In EU, countries double down on upload filters, memes as Article 17 goes into effect


Glynn Moody has a summary article in Techdirt about the “progress” of the EU copyright directive, and it isn’t good.   

Mandatory filers seem to be the rule in most countries.  France seems to be particularly dismissive of user “rights”.  Most memes, it seems, would be removed after all.

The question remains how quickly will large media companies put the pressure for the same measures in the U.S.
