Although they're still a relatively recent invention, it's hard to imagine a world without them - in fact, we never thought we'd have to think about it, at all.

"Article 13 will create a "Robo-copyright" regime, where machines zap anything they identify as breaking copyright rules, despite legal bans on laws that require "general monitoring" of users to protect their privacy", BBC cited Jim Killock, executive director of the UK's Open Rights Group, as saying.

The law would "destroy the internet as we know it" warn the campaigners, who add it would "allow big companies to control what we see and do online".

The Save Your Internet campaign website says: "Should Article 13 of the Copyright Directive be adopted, it will impose widespread censorship of all the content you share online". Most importantly, memes, which fall under the article 13 provision, are also somebody's original creative work, although derived from other people's unique content, campaigners stated.

The onus will be on the platforms that let users upload material (think social media, Wikipedia and video platforms like YouTube) to "prevent the availability" of protected works.

The EU suggests that these sites will need to adopt technology that can recognize and block work that belongs to someone other than the person sharing it.

The Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition has previously warned that: "Some requirements contained in Article 13 can enable abusive behavior, thereby threatening freedom of expression and information".

Meanwhile, non-profit The Electronic Frontier Foundation and 56 other rights organizations sent an open letter to European lawmakers in October highlighting their issues with Article 13.
