On September 12, 2018, the European Parliament approved amendments to the Copyright Directive, and voted to begin negotiations between with the European Commission and EU Council.

The vote came after the Parliament rejected a first version of the Directive on July 5, 2018.

The Copyright Directive has been widely commented on, particularly for its Article 13, which would introduce the requirement for internet platforms to establish upload filters to ensure that copyright-infringing content is not made available online, and Article 11, which would require internet platforms to agree with publishers of press publications on a fee to display snippets of news articles.
