They refused to give Voss a negotiating mandate.

Julia Reda, a Pirate Party MEP who helped start the campaign, tweeted: "Great success: Your protests have worked!" SACEM, the Society of Authors, Composers and Publishers of Music, issued a statement describing the vote as "the product of a violent GAFA campaign that manipulated the opinion of a large number of MEPs, disregarding the work done by their colleagues in the Legal Affairs Committee".

Several versions of Wikipedia's homepage, including the Italian, Spanish, Polish and Portuguese sites, were replaced with warnings of the significant harm editors believe the move will inflict if approved.

Campaigners say that if Article 13 is passed it will prevent free and creative sharing of content on the internet.

In spite of the European Union deciding to keep out Wikipedia from being affected, as it was an encyclopedia, Wikipedia has held protests in shared aims with those that will be affected. However, the articles will now be sent for a vote in front of all MEPs to see whether there is still widespread support for the proposed legislation.

At the heart of the intense battle today were Articles 11 and 13. Article 11, created to protect established media outlets in Europe, would have granted them the authority to demand that anybody who wanted to excerpt even small parts of their stories get (and potentially pay for) a license or permission from them.

"The article never uses the word "filter" or "filtering" anywhere in it".

Conversely, Open Rights Group leader Jim Killock congratulates the EU Parliament for its recognition that "machine censorship of copyright material is not an easy and simple fix". "The future of an open internet and creativity in Europe depends on it". Unfortunately, like a lot of the internet it seems, I don't think taking away fair use policy is the way to go about it, particularly when it is used for just as much good as it is bad (think advertisement and innovation). But he had a bigger concern. Though it has strong support from musicians and the music industry who have spent years fighting YouTube, arguing it exploits legal protections around music videos viewed on its service and pays lower royalties than they are due. In particular, we are talking about news stories. The draft law sought to make Internet giants share the money gained from content produced by publishers, broadcasters and artists, but opponents said it was a threat to the freedom of the Internet.
