I don't know if any of you have seen what's happening with the European copyright law Directive 13, but if this law comes into being we could be saying goodbye to the likes of this.....

Here is a quote from the article

The Article stipulates that platforms should “prevent the availability” of protected works, suggesting these ISSPs will need to adopt technology that can recognise and filter work created by someone other than the person uploading it. This could include fragments of music, pictures and videos. If you’ve ever been on the internet, you’ll know that this ‘remix’ culture is a key part of how online communities function. The worry is that Article 13 will hinder this, and create a type of censorship that ignores nuances in how content can be adopted, quoted or parodied.

So all the vids and memes you love could disapear and who knows Fan Fiction could be nex,t as there may be a blanket sweep to rid platforms of any perceived infringement. Please read this article and go to the openmedia campaign page and send a letter to your MEP. We have to protect our freedom to squee before it is taken from us.

Please spread the word, use your twitter and facebook accounts to make as much noise as possible!

Holy Crow. The forces of greed are out there beating us with the copyright stick, even though it's been proven more is purchased if the flow is allowed to spread. : ( Thanks for the post.

The more people that sign and pester their MEP the better chance we have of stopping this. Thank you for seeing this and go and tell everyone that our internet is under threat again. Thihs is what happens when people who don't fully understand the net try to legislate it.

*Growls* Tell me about it! But at least one of the MEP's answered me back! At least someone is listening.
