Article 13 is part of the copyright directive proposed by the European Parliament, which aims on an effective means of protecting the creativity and interests of copyright owners on the web.

After comments from YouTube CEO, Susan Wojcicki, who warned that article 13 could force YouTube to block user videos, the platform launched a pop-up campaign informing the public where  YouTube underlines that it supports the idea of Article 13 and wants to help creators and performers achieve success, but also intends to develop more effective ways to protect copyright.

At the same time, the company warns that adoption of article 13 in the current version may cause serious consequences for everyone. (ns.)
