Europe

  • As part of the European Union’s overhaul of its copyright rules, Brussels could force online giants Facebook and Google to closely police contents uploaded to their platforms. The reform, which was first proposed in September 2016, could eventually lead to a ban on memes, a typically humorous video or photo shares on social media. Online platforms fear they could be forced to install so-called upload filters in order to comply with the draconian changes to Brussels policy, which could also act as a crackdown on news websites.
