well kurtz only to it. tonight two major stories here in europe the european parliament has approved a controversial copyright law all designed to tame the wild west of the internet opponents call it a dark day for internet freedom supporters say it's time for giants such as google and youtube to stop free loading and in britain the prime minister losing control of bricks it overnight parliament voted to put itself in charge of taking the country out of the european union lawmakers telling the executive if you can't lead then we will go off in berlin this is the day. time. to the right three hundred and twenty nine.
12:03 am
three hundred ten i would like to congratulate the house for tightening control the government's approach has been an abject failure and this time must now find a solution from a just as close and she's just interested in a future where we'll be rolling on the cake we are about national interest it's one of this and that we have learned from three seventy seven if you look. in that b.b.c. to factor in that what authors think. this government has failed this house must not believe will succeed. also coming up tonight algeria as president has held power for two decades but refuses to step aside completely a political powder keg and now the military has stepped in claiming the president is unfit to serve. we must find
12:04 am
a solution that respects the constitution as well as to soften t of a country. a solution that sigrid will tool and acceptable to all will parties. and to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and all around the world welcome we begin the day with europe's attempt to thrust the internet into the twenty first century that is how lawmakers in the european parliament describe the controversial internet copyright legislation which they passed today in short it requires online platforms such as google and you tube to pay a fair price to content creators now supporters of the legislation say giant platforms have been freeloading by not paying for the content the content that they use to generate advertising revenue but opponents including google say this is poison for creativity and that it will serve as a gatekeeper snuffing out individuals and small companies who would like to use the
12:05 am
internet to grow their brand. four years of intense argument came to a head in strasburg on tuesday when the european parliament debated copyright reform german law maker x. and fast negotiated the deal on behalf of the parliament thank you. start this is about the rule of law it's all one we're talking about is protecting a fundamental right it's about property and about the right to intellectual property and finally it's about fair payment for content creators it's up to us to save european cultural products and not to hand them over to tech monopolies for them to plunder. was. the aim of this reform is to require those who profit from content shared on the internet to obtain permission to do so and if necessary to pay the originators.
12:06 am
of. people like musician alexander dommage who currently find it almost impossible to benefit when their creative work is uploaded to the internet. this is about a fundamental right to creators who want to live from their efforts composers photographers whatever have a right to share in the commercial exploitation of their work that means to receive payment. the. critics fear the change will make the internet less free and lead to de facto censorship this legitimate content is mistakenly kept offline they also worry that small platforms will struggle to chase down all the licenses to use content. tens of thousands of people across europe have demonstrated against the plans many feel strongly regulation of the internet should be as light as possible although others say the protests were part of a managed campaign by big corporations like google. with european elections just
12:07 am
weeks away the issue of copyright on the internet has become intensely controversial. opponents of the reform say that change means content will be checked by automatic filters rather than human being. what the politicians expect algorithms to be able to do is to tell the difference between a copyright infringement and satire as long as artificial intelligence does not develop a sense of humor this is something that's going to remain impossible i think we should not trust the block black box of an algorithm to tell us what we can and cannot post online. in the end the stress by the parliament voted in favor of the full package of copyright reforms by three hundred forty eight votes to two hundred seventy four. you member states ms now formally approved the legislation before it can take effect. for both sides of this issue and to do that to my right is called
12:08 am
aspen from our social media desk into my far right is my colleague and a musician as well warner paul and gentlemen it's good to have you here at the big desk that we start here with the musician so if you consider what was passed today then that would imply that for years you have been shortchanged by these online platforms and indeed and many others. these companies like you to google facebook they've been using a lot of content of creative content and really been bursting us properly and i mean. they. are paying a lot less than even competitors like spotify you know i mean it's really a quarter quite a dire situation you know able to demand a fair price what we will now we will now i mean they've had it they've had a deal in place with the german collection it's been a bit it's not been a very good one and this will now force them to actually properly license this material that they want to use and for luck it will be kind of like
12:09 am
a blanket license where they make make deals with the whole industry so that there is you know. is this a better. sense of getting a fair or maybe possibly even close to fair munition closer is that the situation here that they need the european union to come in and force these big platforms to depend for what they're using i mean platforms are not going to evolve on their own we've seen that with facebook with all the legislation with go around that company however you know i think a lot of the protesters who don't support article thirteen would still support an artist's right to make money and that's not really the issue here in terms of who is protesting what they say is they just don't like this law it's too broad it covers so much content not just music we're talking about movies images tax anything that could be copyrighted but it's yet very vague it doesn't say how should a company like you tube or even a smaller company detect copyrighted information from the billions of bits of information uploaded online every day they say they don't have the technology to do
12:10 am
that so there is technology out there but it's just not very good you have you might need something like an upload filter they call it which automatically scans the content before it's uploaded and will block it if it's copyrighted it's not good enough yet it's imperfect you have false positives and what the protesters say is it will catch copyrighted material that is being used legally maybe it's a remix maybe it's a piece of art or or what have you that we could be stopped and that could stop freedom of expression on the internet is that a valid argument partially i think over you know there's so many there's so many instances where if you if you want to publish something you want to get something online or make a movie you have to do due diligence you can't just use old material and so i mean i think it's a for me it's a bit of a cop out argument because you know there are rules and there are you know and then you can't just take off and right now we're all content creators like we all tweet something we all upload upload to facebook and you know you could take a picture you could turn it into something funny and that would be then your own
12:11 am
content so it's not just art is this really everyone everyone that uses the internet it is a mindset that has to be changed i can remember once there was this gentleman who said. if you go into a bookstore and you take a book without paying for that stealing but if the book is online and someone gives you the data a copy of the book and you take it do you consider that stealing and i think a lot of people would say well actually i don't but it is stealing at least for the author isn't it well tell them in there that it's completely the music industry has suffered greatly it's not the same industry there was twenty years ago you know news news media is running you know i mean the print is fighting a downhill battle against this is well they're getting that you know what's in article eleven which was going to put this link tax in there as well you know i mean which might be a saving grace for some media including this leak tax what is that exactly this is saying that google should no longer be able to take news from other platforms and put it into its google news search results without paying for it some companies are
12:12 am
ok with that they say great we should get a little bit of money others say we want that reach we want to show up and google news results because we get a much bigger audience and maybe google would just say this is too much effort we don't even have service at the threat that if we don't accept no pay or low pay google will just not allow us to be shown i mean this just shows you how but how many problems really are with the internet that cannot be fixed with with one e.t.u. directive i mean that it works out if it is you open up a can of worms and you end up with more we got ten seconds left where do you expect to get the the money that is owed to you unfortunately it will take them at least twelve years for the european countries to. grow two years twelve feel like well as they say is better than their check judgment. call nasa gentlemen thank you very much. it was late last night when the british house of commons became the scene of a legal power grab parliamentarians voted to take control of wednesday's session
12:13 am
which means the prime minister and her government will have no say in what can be debated and in what can be voted upon a move rarely seen in british politics. and even more significant because it means parliament not the prime minister is now directing how the u.k. will leave the european union tomorrow lawmakers plan to debate and vote on numerous breaks it possibilities none of these will be what the prime minister has spent the past two years advocating here is a look at what was said late last night when to recently lost control of rights. mr speaker this is the first chance i've had to address the house since my remarks last wednesday evening. to the house was coming so the prime minister's addressing the house the prime minister. i expressed my frustration with our collective failure to take a decision but i know i unless this house agrees to it no deal
12:14 am
will happen no brics it must not happen and just slow bret's it is not that will bring the british people together mr speaker the government's approach to brecht's it has now become a national embarrassment we now have an extension until mid april all neither trying to second and despite the clearly expressed will of this house we will still face the prospect of a disastrous no deal breck's it. be to the right three hundred twenty no my nose to the left three hundred to oh yes i think these guys have a lot of stuff. that will be having on wednesday and we'll have that this is to do with all that i missed in september and it's negotiation now south of here. i just pummeled you it may be entirely until the full thinking. now let's go to charlotte apart she is standing by in london on the
12:15 am
story for us going to need to you show it to i mean i want you to take a listen to what people in the u.k. and here on the continent what they have been saying about prime minister theresa may and parliament's move to take control of breath so take. it up with it. i think in a little bit similar to the way that when you're in a. quite good nightclub in the friend of yours you know come on i know somewhere else to go and you will leave but then you realize you can't get into the other club there was a very brief. the well. now we're stuck in the street. i'm still very confused open trying to keep track of which i'm sort of losing the will will to live so much i'm sure the employees on stage one lesson that we have learned from three seventy set if you look at easter inability to factor in what authors think. that beauty to forge bonds off trusts within
12:16 am
a cabinet she must be totally devoid of the basic human skills that you need to be a political leader. so other that i mean those are scathing words about theresa may by philip i mean he sits on the brakes at steering committee in the european parliament he has been present at each step of the brits process so when he issues that kind of indictment i mean it has to ring true for a lot of people doesn't. well it's certainly a view brant that many here many members of parliament here in britain share it's actually quite remarkable what happened over the past twenty four hours here it's the first time in one hundred years said a british prime minister has been stripped of control over what happens and parliament so to resign may lose in control of the brakes a process she's facing more and more criticism from within her own tory party and she's really clinging on to her premiership at this point and trying to still get
12:17 am
her deal through parliament for a time on wednesday she will meet with the hard liners within the tory party with the hot tears again and we are hearing that she could offer them a deal and the deal would look like she would say look i will announce a date for my departure i will make it official i will i will resign at some point but therefore you will have to vote for my bricks said deal and she could bring it back at some point this week so the question though is is it really sensible for the tory party to get rid of their leadership at this point in the bracks of process and i was talking to steve bryan before who is a member of parliament and was up to yesterday a minister of the government he quit to basically help parliament to force soft of bricks at and here is what he had to say i think the last thing this country needs
12:18 am
right now is the naval. ship election the only place with the same parliament as we've got right now it wouldn't think it would do is cause i mean that we have to take the european elections and i'm probably just back in the same situation in six months time. so will we see a conservative rebellion here in the next few days will theresa may go or will she stay it's definitely is shaping up to be a very crucial week here in london and can we say tonight. you know what is the thinking about what will indeed happen to morrow or people predicting. so tomorrow is going to be a very interesting day here in london because what happened essentially is that palm and took control of the process they are in the driving seat now and tomorrow they will hold a series of vote indicative votes on a different options on how to move forward they have basically trying to find
12:19 am
a new consensus and a majority on how to move forward and the options that are on the table for example another referendum a second referendum on whether to stay in the european union or whether to vote for it to resign may steal another option is do they want a no deal that doesn't look very likely another option would be a softer brick said for example remaining closer relationship to the customs union so members of parliament are going to vote on seven seven options tomorrow they're going to get a ballot paper where they can basically make that cross at yes or no on how many however many options they want to and then in the end they are hoping to find a majority and a way forward if that doesn't happen if the majority is not moving forward then we are back to square one and then it's between two he's a maze deal and no deal breck's it on april twelfth and i just want to make another point i was talking to a lot of people on the streets here in london today and and over the last couple of
12:20 am
days and people have very very tired of this process at this point they found telling me whether they voted for remain or leave in the referendum three years ago that they basically fed up with it and that they just want the country to move on whatever the outcome i mean i think a lot of people would share that sentiment and say that they are suffering now from the team of correspondents to other parts of the story for us tonight in london on the eve of what promises to be another exciting bricks and session in parliament tomorrow for a lot of thank you. where the army cheat. has demanded that the president be declared unfit to rule that the army is calling for the start of a constitutional process that would put a caretaker leader in place of these beautifully has been in power for two decades and is now in failing help on syria has seen weeks of peaceful mass protests
12:21 am
calling for the president to resign the army says it's acting in the country's best interest. we must find a solution that respects the constitution as well as to soften t of a country a solution that's a grievous. and acceptable to all will potties. i'm joined now at the big table by isabel beer of films from the german institute for international in security affairs right here in berlin she's a senior fellow specializing in north africa and the middle east it's good to have you on the show let's talk about what we're seeing right now i want to begin by asking how surprised are you at this move by the military stepping in i mean it's almost counterintuitive that an army chief would want to protect the constitution in the country well this is not the first time this is happening either now jerry in our nor in the arab world but i wasn't that surprised given the level of protest
12:22 am
but also given the level of rumors in the past days i think everyone knew that the one person that could push beautifully out would be the army chief of staff however i would have not expected him to do this so openly i would have thought that they would try to nudge him out of the now the army is clearly position itself and has gone beyond its profit if is that by asking the constitutional council to step in so in a way if the constitutional council follows this law following army in the army chief says something like this in the open in public does that mean that he has the backing of the entire military of algeria well i think one of the reasons why he had to do this is because he lost some of the backing because he stuck to beautifully and the military is very have to a genius put a flake of put one of the very important generals head of intelligence into retirement probably forced retirement so there were quite a few splits within the army but the chief of staff was standing by the side of put
12:23 am
to sleep until now so i guess it's internal pressure internal pressure what about all of these people we've been seeing for the past few weeks protesting. they're getting what they want and it's being delivered by the military you're shaking your head getting what they want because i don't use the a broad spectrum of reactions because we see those that say this is none of the business of the. i mean there's people that are speaking about a coup which i wouldn't i wouldn't call this a coup but there they are speaking of a hijacking of the transition proposals they made so this is this is part of the civil society activists and then yes there are those that are reacting the way you just described that say we would have had a constitutional vacuum had you know beautifully stayed on and especially after the end of his term on which inspires twenty eight april so i so that those think that now it's important to concentrate on free elections then there is the traditional opposition where you already see some people kind of aspiring to two to the
12:24 am
presidency so they're positioning themselves cautiously and then you have all those that in the past days change the camp and they have not said a word so far so i do think that it will there will be a certain demobilisation but people will still be out in the streets of the jury being basically connected to the wife of beautifully does he have to i mean i hate to put it in such macabre terms but does he have to die before real political change because i don't think it's linked to book at flicka we have a system of competing cliental this networks and beautifully come managed to kind of maneuver or marginalize outmaneuver some of these other networks and i think now we have the other networks struggling to come back so i think this is what some of the protesters very well understand that if they want system change. to flee because leaving or being forced to leave is not going to to change the system at
12:25 am
all and you has a very young population right that one would think that that would be a good omen for the future of the country is well you have economic you have of course the problem of unemployment that you have everywhere but you see you see a very mature and very interesting young population that has the. collective experience or memory of the civil war they didn't experience themselves but it is in the collective memory so this is also one of the reasons they have been so constructive in a way in these protests so creative so so peaceful and i think that's a chance but at the same time algeria has massive face of massive economic challenges i mean this is a country dependent almost entirely on oil and gas and dust on you know volatile global energy markets so what. they haven't managed to diversify so i think this is the challenge is that to me is good if we could because you can
12:26 am
hold everything back i don't think it's so much good to flick i think there's many in the system that are profiting from a fairly in transparent informal system you know rule of law very very partial only so i think there is there is a lot of resistance by the elites to reform there's a lot of protectionism also foreign investment very difficult you cannot have more than forty nine percent so it's not very attractive for investors either to go what about europe what about europe looking across the mediterranean and seeing that well of course the unions i think are quite worried but they're not saying a word because algeria have a very high sense of sovereignty which you know it lies in their history its story in the anti-colonial struggle so there everyone has been quiet reticent to say something except the french eventually did say that bit of the move to. not go for reelection was good which you know got them into trouble in algeria
12:27 am
. so i think europe is quite worried but the interesting thing is europeans are worried about migration but what i hear from algerians all the time now is this is a point where we don't want to leave because of how we have a chance but we want to we we can construct our future now sure here in the country so i think this is a positive sign jared. is a builder fails from the german institute for international and security affairs here in berlin we appreciate you coming in and sharing your insights thank you. well the day is almost over the conversation continues online you'll find us on twitter either at u.w. news or you can follow me abroad go off t.v. don't forget to use you see right there the hash tag the day every member whatever happens between now and then tomorrow is another day we'll see that at.
