The Internet should remain open and free
That which is right or that of the right-wing politics (majority in the European Parliament)? I have my doubts there
The EU is not the USA, they tend to be smarter (Net Neutrality and the Kaspersky Lies, a good example).
Art.11 and 13 show however that smarter does not necessarily mean also benevolent with the rights of citizens

@kobi nope, they also supress results of own commissioned studys and follow lobbying of press giants (like US politicians do with TV networks) for positive coverage (especially concerning this law) in pending reelections.
Furthermore, due to the political party dynamics, positions get filled with phased out politicians who could not go into the private sector directly.
If the responsible person is unable to accuratly state impacts of a law he is responsible for, smart is a very missused attribute.
Fight zeh Germans!
After a similar local law failed spectacularly, they (we) are now trying to spread fear and misery all over Europe (again…).

In a rather fascinating turn of events, the Music Industry (who initially spearheaded the campaign for A13) now say that it would be better off not having it.
I have to wonder now, who exactly benefits if the legislation passes?
It is ridiculous and idiotic when, as happens more and more, even movie TRAILERS are blocked 'by copyright', it shows that the industry, apart from its profits, does not even know what culture and politicians are at its service either.
The author's interest should be to make themselves known, which is hardly possible with this policy.
Possibly because of this there are more and more artists who become independent from the industry, spreading their work on their own in different platforms, such as Bandcamp and others.
