BRUSSELS (Reuters) – EU countries on Monday endorsed an overhaul of the bloc’s two-decade old copyright rules targeting Google and Facebook and seeking to protect the bloc’s creative industries.
Nineteen countries voted in favor while six were against and three abstained. The overhaul won the green light from the European Parliament last month.
