Quote:
Axel Voss, a German MEP and key figure in creating the proposed law, defended it, saying the "big platforms" were behind a misinformation campaign. (underlined by me.)
"We have, at the moment, an extreme imbalance in the whole copyright system," he said.
He said that creating links "for a private purpose" was explicitly excluded from the law, which would only affect commercial use.
Mr Voss also rubbished claims of an "upload filter", saying the proposal would only affect 1%-5% of the internet.
He also said the rules would apply to "only those that actually publish copyright protected content" and earn money from it.
If the European Parliament and Council adopt the draft text, individual governments must then act to implement the directive in their national laws.
In the case of the UK, it would only become law if it comes into force before Brexit "exit day" - 29 March 2019.

The banner is withdrawn on WPNL. Unbelievable, by troll Arb Natuur12. But here he is right.

And Jimmy, yes Jimmy. Jimmy is upset.

I have been campaigning for this for some time, and I accept your criticism that I should have campaigned harder. But do keep in mind that such decisions aren't up to me, nor up to the Wikimedia Foundation, by our longstanding and healthy traditions. A great strength of the Wikipedia community is that we are thoughtful and deliberative. The weakness is that we are unable to act quickly. If we lose this vote this week (we may or may not!) then we will have to really go ballistic to try to defeat it in September. But let's keep pushing this week as a win is still in sight.--Jimbo Wales (talk) 17:32, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

I don't think there is something to go ballistic, Jimmy. Germany has spoken. Maybe time for Jimmy to read this book.....

Is that a complete shutdown or just a temporary blackout? The English one had one like that a few years ago.
