EUs new copyright laws (articles 11 and 13)

They are voting on it today, and if it passes it will henceforth be illegal to post links without a license. I can't link to an article describing it though, so this might be fake news.

Wikipedia went down (albeit only in Italian) in opposition to this change, seems like it would be pretty radical if it were to pass.

The parliament has voted against articles 11 and 13, thankfully.
That the Commision tried to push them in the first place is telling, though.

Edit: Apparently I was wrong. The directive hasn't been killed yet. There's going to be a new vote on it in september.
