Technological Solutions for the European Copyright Directive and the Fight Against Fake News

The European Copyright Directive in the single digital market, recently voted, aims to induce revenue sharing between platforms, press publishers and news agencies as well as content creators and to offer them a better control of their productions.

To achieve this it is essential first to identify the contents, second to enable their traceability. As a result these tools will also help the fight against the spread of fake news.
