New updates to intellectual property rights have been approved for the EU. The reforms will be beneficial to artists and publishers in gaining a greater share of returns from their work. One controversial element is in Article 11 where news and media organizations will be able to collect a larger share of the profit from aggregators such as Google and Facebook. But the most push back has come from is Article 13 that states Big Tech must automatically screen content for copyright infringement, requiring a much higher level of policing by the companies.
