The EU has ratified a new regulation that is designed to shield copyright, however it has some serious manageable consequences for on-line content, in particular, user-generated stuff uploaded to web sites like YouTube and SoundCloud.
It’s a part of the EU Copyright Directive that covers how on line offerings have to deal with high-value copyrighted content. It’s been 18 years since the EU ultimate looked at copyright and, of course, matters have modified remarkably in that time.
“This is absolutely only an updating of copyright regulation for the digital age of today, says Georgia Shriane, senior partner solicitor in the industrial and technological know-how crew at law firm Boyes Turner. “It’s designed to forestall pirating of original copyright cloth online, the place posts can go viral very quickly infringing the creator’s rights.”
