Of Dog's Breakfasts, Article 13, and Mythbusting

As anyone who has been following the sorry saga of the EU copyright reform, key elements – Articles 3 on text and data mining, 11 on the link tax and 13 on the upload filter censorship machine – are turning into the proverbial dog’s breakfast, a complete and utter mess. The well-founded criticisms of the proposed law have piled up to an unprecedented extent, causing the politicians behind it to resort to iterative obfuscation. Successive arguments against each of the three articles mentioned above have led to the Commission’s original text being mashed and murdered in an attempt to “address” the points by adding in new “clarifications” that just make things worse.
