This is a follow up video to our previous video on Article 13, now named Article 17, which you can find here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Qczwl2jvXQ&t=1s
This video explores the top 4 misconceptions of the Article. I got a ton of backlash for my initial video about Article 17, and wanted to create a video clearing up some of the misconceptions. Most of the perception of the negative in this directive comes from earlier iterations of the law. The new law reads quite reasonably.
The key to remember here is that Article 17 is interpreted by MEMBER STATES. Meaning it is up to the states to interpret how to enforce the directive. Some may not at all. And some may enforce it a great deal. But overall Article 17 provides a blanket to protect content creators from bad actors. Adding the “human element” of review makes it more difficult for copyright trolls to issue false takedowns.
Companies will not pull out of Europe as a result of this. There is no ROI in that. This regulation isn’t vastly different from DMCA enforcement in the United States. It is a necessary step to establish some guidelines for protecting copyrighted work.

I’ve recently heard a lot of people and media talking about Article 13 – which is now reclassified to Article 17. People were saying that Article 17 is a doomsday article for the internet and will result in all kinds of problems in the EU. Well, I decided to do something crazy and actually read the law.
Well after I read Article 17 I didn’t get the feeling the world is over. In fact the current iteration of Article 17 is probably good for creators – it just doesn’t benefit the large content platforms that have to conform to new laws. Article 17 closely resembles the DMCA law in America, except it accounts for copyright trolls by demanding humans review of requested takedowns.
Overall form your own opinion (by reading the actual Article!) but here’s my commentary on it.
