BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Poland files complaint with EU court over copyright rule


(Reuters) — Poland has submitted a complaint to the European Union's top court against copyright rules adopted by the bloc in April to protect Europe's creative industries, which Warsaw says may result in preventive censorship.

Google LLC will have to pay publishers for news snippets and Facebook Inc. filter out protected content under copyright rules aimed at ensuring fair compensation for the EU's $1 trillion creative industries.

Poland has said the overhaul was a step backward, arguing that the filter requirement could lay the foundation for censorship.

"This system may result in adopting regulations that are analogous to preventive censorship, which is forbidden not only in the Polish constitution but also in the EU treaties," Deputy Foreign Minister Konrad Szymanski told public broadcaster TVP Info.
