European Copyright Directive

Despite a massive publicity campaign and warnings of a damaged music industry, from Youtube, the European Government have pressed ahead with a set of new copyright laws.

The controvertial Article 13 of the European Copyright Directive will force 'User Upload' platforms like Youtube to face up to copyright responsibilities and pay up for the first time.

However, Youtube have made various veiled threats about the future accessibility of their service to unsigned bands, for instance, if the law goes through; which they claim would cause great damage to the music industry.
