MEPs have voted to reject a controversial copyright law in its current form, deciding to return to the issue in September.
The law would have put a greater responsibility on individual websites to check for copyright infringements.
But the web’s inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee and others had expressed concerns about the proposed rules, which they said threatened internet freedom.
Opponents greeted the decision as a victory.
Julia Reda, a Pirate Party MEP who had campaigned against the legislation tweeted: “Great success: Your protests have worked! The European Parliament has sent the copyright law back to the drawing board.”
