Comment on OTW Legal’s International Advocacy and You!

    I thought Article 11 only referred to news websites/news aggregators and is inteded to combat misleading information/"fake news"? Since the AO3 is not (in any way I can see) journalistic, how would it even be affected?

      I have read Article 11 several times but I still don't understand how it could impose a requirement for Internet platforms to pay money to news publishers for providing links to news articles. Or how it could combat "fake news" for that matter.

      This article gives the publishers rights for the digital use of their press publications, these rights expire after 20 years. It is not mentioned in the article that someone would have to pay publishers for simply posting links to their articles. Of course I am not a lawyer, so legal talk is not my forte.
