Qwant has supported the Copyright Directive (Articles 11 & 13)
This might have slipped from everybody but search engine Qwant has supported the new European Copyright directives.
I think the idea of having since external freely queryable database for copyright is a great idea, and would go a long way to fixing some of the issues around a13 - to me that means you don't need to rely on Google and amazon holding companies to ransom to use their proprietary upload filters.
That said, it is still just a proposal, and doesn't fix the issues around false identification.

Qwant voluntarily paying copyright holders sounds like an April Fools' joke to me.
