From the fine folks that brought you GDPR...

The EU has been working on a new copyright law that would make Internet providers liable for copyright infringements of their customers. The law could have a number of impacts including the need for providers to implement content filtering.

Despite opposition, the law seems to continue moving forward. It is unclear if this law will give more momentum to similar efforts that are underway in the US.
