UN human rights expert Kaye warns about EU copyright directive Article 13

UN Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Opinion and Expression, David Kaye, speaking about the controversial proposed Article 13 of the European Union Copyright Directive, said ‘Europe has a responsibility to modernise its copyright law to address the challenges of the digital age. … But this should not be done at the expense of the freedom of expression that Europeans enjoy today.’ He especially criticised pressure to implement pre-publication filtering to monitor and restrict user-generated content to prevent copyright infringement
