The future of the Internet in Europe and beyond has taken an interesting twist. Under the latest reform agreed upon by the EU, Google and Facebook will be forced to share revenue with content providers and to remove copyright-protected content on both YouTube or Instagram. Implementing such an initiative would require an expensive investment in software and digital filters that will censor the internet as we know it. All that awaits is a vote as to whether to pass this controversial proposal into law during the March 25-28 session of the European Parliament.
The future demand for VPN services in Europe may undoubtedly stand to grow if the Directive comes to pass.
