UK won’t implement EU’s copyright directive after Brexit

The UK has said it won’t implement the EU’s Copyright Directive once it’s out of the EU on January 31st. This will let British internet companies and users avoid contentious aspects like Article 13 (renamed Article 17), which requires that sites check all uploaded content for copyrighted material.

This is an objectively good thing. I'm sure there will be some naysayers, but I think this is something that most people will think is a good thing to come out if brexit

I'm personally opposed to withdrawal from the EU in the manner we currently are. But, I must say, this is a very good move in the right direction, and on it's own probably warrants the move. Especially economically, with the internet being so prevelant in our societies, for online companies that don't need to move assets (online subscription services, internet personalities, etc), that's a huge incentive to base in the UK.
