With a very tight majority, the Legal Affairs Committee (JURI) of the European Parliament has given a go for the so-called European copyright reform, a law that may have a big impact on all the players in the digital world, including the SMEs. The European DIGITAL SME Alliance calls on the Members of the European Parliament to block the flawed reform in the upcoming plenary vote on the 5th of July. The new law compels platforms to continuously monitor users’ activity as to eliminate copyrighted content. Such obligation would apply to all platforms, independently from their size. Therefore, smaller platforms or startups that do not have the means to comply may be forced down and, thus, reinforce the dominance of Facebook and the likes.
