Can you please point out to the exact part in the proposal which says that there would be a tax on links shared on Facebook, Twitter or Reddit? I read the proposal but haven't found it.

But how will this affect users sharing links on social media?

Plus it's called "publishers' right", right? :) So the publisher is free to decide that Google News is actually a useful service which drives traffic to the website. Therefore the publisher can decide not to ask for any payment. So will the legislation have such a devastating impact as you are envisaging?

I just don't see a way how this can affect link sharing by users on Reddit or other social networks.
