The urban innovation unit of Alphabet Inc. and sister company to Google is proposing to speed up its plans to redevelop 350 derelict acres on the city’s waterfront in return for a cut of property taxes, development charges and increased land values.

The fightback through licensing agreements with the likes of Spotify Technology SA and Alphabet Inc.’s YouTube has put a spring in the step of record company execs, and industry revenues are growing again. Now, the hope for stars like Paul McCartney and Lady Gaga is that a reform of copyright law in Europe will help them fight back even harder against the powerful tech platforms, allowing them to demand more money for their songs. It’s a bet that may backfire. One of the most lobbied-for parts of the EU’s copyright reform law — which the European Parliament is set to vote on in March or April — is “Article 13.” It proposes making companies like Google and Facebook Inc. directly responsible for preventing copyrighted material from being uploaded by their users without a license.
