The quote in here is nice to see said from Msoft’s CEO, at least, whether or not it means anything.

It seems some ears are pricking up. Keep shouting.

The text persuades, the *notes prove。

A couple of EU Copyright Directive stories:

Italy, which under its previous government had been supporters of Articles 11 and 13 in the EU Copyright Directive, has now made a pretty clear statement that if the country is going to support the latest directive, it needs to protect the users of the web, and the only way to do that is to remove Articles 11 and 13. – Italy Tells Rest Of EU To Drop Articles 11 And 13 From The Copyright Directive


Every year, we run thousands of experiments in Search. We recently ran one in the EU to understand the impact of the proposed Article 11 if we could show only URLs, very short fragments of headlines, and no preview images. All versions of the experiment resulted in substantial traffic loss to news publishers. Even a moderate version of the experiment (where we showed the publication title, URL, and video thumbnails) led to a 45 percent reduction in traffic to news publishers. Our experiment demonstrated that many users turned instead to non-news sites, social media platforms, and online video sites—another unintended consequence of legislation that aims to support high-quality journalism. Searches on Google even increased as users sought alternate ways to find information. – Now is the time to fix the EU copyright directive
