What is Article 13?

Article 13 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) is the 13th article of the international convention to protect human rights and political freedoms in Europe. Actual proposal of Article 13 gives internet platforms an obligation to deal with copyrights as rights owners. And evan to the extent that every recorded content (text, photos, video, etc.) must be checked during uploading to ensure that copyright is not violated.


What are the consequences?

In practice, this is an automatic worldwide censorship. Any uploaded content on the internet through internet service providers (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.) will first be inspected. If the system finds matching, it will disable the publication of such content. It is not only about the whole work, but also about all fragments, quotes, satirical, parodic and critical uses. For example, if anybody doesn‘t like a critical text that contains a quotation, he will use Article 13 to prevent it from spreading.

No Youtube for Europe anymore??

Article 13 is part of European copyright legislation created with the intent to better protect creativity and find effective ways for copyright holders to protect their content online. We support the goals of Article 13, but the version written by the European Parliament could have large unintended consequences that would change the web as we know it. There’s a better way.
