Showdown on upload filters and the link tax on September 12: These are the options in front of MEPs

Before the summer, the European Parliament decided to rethink its position on EU copyright reform plans, including upload filters and a “link tax”, after massive protests.

Refusing to address the problems of his proposals in meaningful ways, rapporteur Axel Voss (EPP) failed to build broad consensus around an alternative plan. Consequently, over 200 individual proposals for changes were filed. MEPs will vote on all of them on Wednesday, September 12.

Below, I am publishing the alternatives MEPs will choose from. Call your MEP today and urge them to choose one of the options that avoids filtering uploads or restricting links!
