Now the countries must approve the legislation.

The EU has voted on Articles 11 and 13, the Internet Copyright Act, a number of times. Now they have voted once again on an updated version that excludes meme's and gifs.

These are Articles 11 and 13
Article 11, called the "link tax," means that platforms like Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Twitter and YouTube have to pay linked material licenses - such as news - that are uploaded. Article 13, known as the "Upload Filter", requires that platforms such as Facebook and YouTube scan the content that is uploaded and stop unlicensed copyrighted material sharing.

Will take years
The legislation has been debated since 2016 when the EU first presented the proposal.

Now that it has been adopted, it is again up to the EU countries to agree to implement the bill. More debate is expected around this, and if everyone agrees, two years will be allowed to implement the changes.
