The European Council has given the green light to
 implement sweeping changes to existing copyright laws, in an effort to curtail the power of Google, YouTube and Facebook.
The controversial new laws, which were backed by MEPs last month after years of 
savage discussion, will compel web organizations to be in charge of policing content on their locales and to give a greater offer of benefits to content makers for showing their work. 

Google and Facebook will presently be compelled to go into authorizing concurrences with specialists, performers and columnists to show their work out of the blue, flagging a potential move in the financial matters of the web. 

Nineteen European governments voted in favor of the patch up in the European Council on Monday, including the UK, France and Germany. 

Finland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland and Sweden contradicted the changes, while Belgium, Estonia and Slovenia went without. 

The measures, which are relied upon to vigorously affect the main concern of online organizations, were proclaimed by the European Council as an "achievement for the advancement of a powerful and well-working computerized single market". 

This choice will probably increase the pressure among Brussels and Silicon Valley, following a progression of multi-billion dollar fines and expense requests against innovation behemoths Google, Amazon and Apple.
