Things that can still stop #Article13:
-Council of Ministers can still reject it
-Individual countries still have to create their own laws to enforce it (this is not like GDPR, which came into force directly). This could cause a lot of friction against the law.
-Article 13's requirements are technically impossible: it requires filters to stop all piracy while allowing all fair use. This makes the law vulnerable to being rewritten/rejected at some point in the future.
