This concerns me slightly. Hard to wade through the usual slew of alarm and contrary assertions, but there's 'something' still going on, after bubbling under for a couple of years, that should maybe be followed if you run a website: BREAKING: The Link Tax is Officially on its Way #SaveTheLink - Call to action | PRCA No, the EU is not going to make hyperlinks illegal Why Europe's New Copyright Proposals Are Bad News for the Internet EU copyright plans: Here’s who loves them, who loathes them—and why (Just some grabbed links - and all the EUs paperwork, assessments and proposals are easily found.) Who knows... I'm personally massively cynical of any politicos dealings with the interweb, their track record being one of not really yet understanding it, believing what some salesman says & a rather misplaced faith in automatic systems. (eg. Cookie warnings - lets train everyone to automatically click on popups! ) I guess we'll see. And before anyone goes 'BREXIT!' and kicks off. Lets not. Regardless of who's in or out and what laws/regulations transfer: this is more about web principles. There are people here who will still be EU citizens and others who never were, but governments worldwide are currently looking at this stuff. The very nature of the Internet makes this stuff automatically a cross-border matter of interest.
