Poland files complaint against EU copyright changes

The government’s complaint is that the wide-ranging laws on digital copyright, which were hugely controversial, could facilitate censorship, Reuters reported in May.

“This system may result in adopting regulations that are analogous to preventive censorship, which is forbidden not only in the Polish constitution but also in the EU treaties,” the news agency quoted deputy foreign minister Konrad Szymański (pictured above) as saying.
