The European Union Legal Affairs Committee (JURI) voted yesterday (June 20) in favour of updates to its Copyright Directive. This directive still needs to be presented to the European Parliament, but already it has generated a quite controversial response.

Saw a fascinating story in ComputerWorld a couple of days ago.
