Article 13 Is Back On: Germany Caves To France As EU Pushes Forward On Ruining The Internet

Quote:
So, to be clear, there is now a draft that is worse than the draft that couldn't get the Council's approval a few weeks ago, and that will have an even bigger impact on the internet by sweeping up tons of smaller sites as well as the larger ones, which will do serious harm to any sites that host user-generated content. And you can't find anyone -- outside of the company selling internet filters -- who supports this. The internet companies are all still against the bill. The legacy entertainment companies are whining that it doesn't go far enough.

And, yet, this draft is likely to be added back on the schedule for a meeting this Friday.


EU Copyright Directive Has Been Made Even More Stupid, And Some Are Still Trying To Make It Even Worse

Quote:
However, here's the incredible bit. Despite Article 13 now being demonstrably even more ridiculous, the MEP in charge of pushing it forward, Axel Voss, is complaining that it's not idiotic enough yet. In response to this draft from the EU Council (which is expected to be approved on Friday), Voss stated:

“What France and Germany have agreed is a new safe harbor for small platforms, able to exist beyond what we already have today. It’s something we can’t accept,” Axel Voss said at a conference in the European Parliament.

Are you fucking kidding me? He's saying even that tiny, useless safe harbor that will apply to basically no one is too much?

Well, an Internet where Gentoo Forums aren't blocked in the EU for a copyrighted meme. :P

Fortunately for us all (hopefully), the usual players can't help but dial up the silliness to 11.

EDIT: Music industry wants out now too.

Only affects for-profit websites. I for one would love to see the end of cheezburger/ebaumsworld/somethingawful and all those other shitty "steal content and plaster it with ads" operations.

Either you want it or you don't. If you want it, then it has value. If you don't like the terms, consume something with agreeable terms.

Effective enforcement will be impossible - doesn't mean we won't get regressive collateral damage. Just look at the DMCA.

https://torrentfreak.com/eu-commission-deletes-article-13-post-because-mob-understood-it-incorrectly-190218/

Quote:
On Friday, the EU Commission published a piece on Medium that suggested that Google has taken over the minds of millions of citizens, rendering them incapable of thinking for themselves in their opposition of Article 13. The piece was later deleted with a note implying that people simply aren't capable of understanding the subtle nuances of the English language.
