What critics say…
Let’s talk about the reaction of critics and analysts. Most of them show disapproval towards the Directive Law. They said these articles are destructive. Because link tax will disable users to take advantages of free sharing. If these articles are implemented then Google can face abused copyright trolls.
Article 13 is more dangerous they said. According to this article an “Upload Filter” is applied to social media apps. No one will be able to upload or share unauthorized and copyright content. To make sure its validation apps like YouTube and Facebook need to scan all of the uploaded content. For these kinds of Apps this thing can proved disastrous.
