In Strasbourg, France, European lawmakers approved an updated version of the Copyright Directive, including the much-contested Article 11 and Article 13. Article 11 calls for news aggregators like Google to pay media companies a so-called “link tax” when sharing their content. Article 13 demands that platforms police the content uploaded to posts ahead of their publication by using automated software that would detect and filter out intellectual property violations.

A Slave Ship Arrives in Port!
June 27, 1717: 'La Concorde' arrives at the trading port of Juida (or Whydah), present-day Ouidah, Benin. During the next several weeks, the crew trades the goods they brought with them from Europe for 516 slaves and 14 ounces of gold dust. This gold dust would later be found on wreck site of the 'Queen Anne's Revenge.' It is estimated that more than half of the entire slave trade took place during the 18th century, with the British, Portuguese and French being the main carriers of nine out of ten slaves abducted in Africa. Around 2.2 million Africans died during the Middle Passage where they were packed into tight, unsanitary spaces on ships for months at a time. Measures were taken to stem the onboard mortality rate, such as enforced "dancing" (as exercise) above deck and the practice of force-feeding enslaved persons who tried to starve themselves. The conditions on board also resulted in the spread of fatal diseases and the suicides of the slaves who escaped by jumping overboard. Slave traders would try to fit anywhere from 350 to 600 slaves on one ship. Before the African slave trade was completely banned by participating nations in 1853, 15.3 million enslaved people had been transported to the Americas.

For years the music industry has argued that YouTube exploits the lack of legal protection around music videos being viewed on its service to pay minimal amounts to artists and labels when they are viewed. The music industry has lobbied that this “value gap” between the true worth of the music videos and what YouTube decides to pay needs to be addressed with legislation. On Wednesday, a crucial vote by the European parliament’s legal affairs committee went the way of the music industry with an agreement to adopt copyright laws that will force platforms such as YouTube to seek licences for music videos.

Blackbeard Pardoned! Blackbeard 300
June 1718: Blackbeard takes his pick of booty and crew after grounding the 'Queen Anne's Revenge' and sloop 'Adventure' and travels to Bath, NC and receives the "gracious pardon" of the Royal Proclamation from Governor Charles Eden. Blackbeard then gives the Governor a share of his plunder. Finding unaccustomed hospitality from a town in need of an economic boost, he decides to take a wife and settle at Plum Point, on the eastern side of Bath Creek. He anchors his sloop 'Revenge' at Ocracoke Island, NC. http://nautilusproductions.com/projects/queen-annes-revenge.
