These are external links and will open in a new window Image caption MEPs have been subject to fierce lobbying by both those who favoured and those who opposed the legislation MEPs have voted to reject a controversial copyright law in its current form, deciding to return to the issue in September. The law would have put a greater responsibility on individual websites to check for copyright infringements. But the web’s inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee and others had expressed concerns about the proposed rules, which they said threatened internet freedom. Opponents greeted the decision as a victory. Julia Reda, a Pirate Party MEP who had campaigned against the legislation tweeted : “Great success: Your protests have worked! The European Parliament has sent the copyright law back to the drawing board.” BPI Music, which represents UK record labels, had supported the bill and tweeted : “We respect the decision… we will work with MEPs over the next weeks to explain how the proposed directive will benefit not just European creativity, but also internet users and the technology sector.” Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales told the BBC he hoped that the music industry could find a way to compromise before the September debate. “Don’t think about filtering everything everyone uploads to the internet. That’s a pipe dream but you are never going to get that,” he said.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 3, 2018 The president has previously attacked the media for using anonymous sources. He claimed last month that The New York Times made up the existence of a source after the individual had given a White House–sanctioned briefing to multiple reporters under the condition his name not be used. Such conditioned briefings are common for the White House and agencies. The practice of not naming sources is also common for journalists who wish to protect the identity of the sources or allow them to discuss information freely. Trump has also frequently gone after The Washington Post and its owner, Jeff Bezos, who also owns Amazon. He reportedly urged the postmaster general to double shipping rates for Amazon amid claims the company is hurting the Postal Service. Trump’s renewed criticism of the media comes five days after a gunman opened fire at the office of The Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Md., killing five people. Police said the suspected shooter, Jarrod Ramos, had a long-running dispute with The Capital Gazette over a column about a criminal harassment case against him. Ramos, 38, brought a defamation suit in 2012 against the paper, but it was thrown out by a judge. However, critics have warned that Trump has stoked animosity toward the media since hitting the campaign trail in 2015. He frequently derides the press as “fake news” and has called media the “enemy of the people.” In the wake of last week’s shooting, Trump said journalists should be “free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job.” The president on Tuesday ordered flags be lowered to half-staff to honor the shooting victims.
