Memes 'will be banned' under new EU copyright law
#1





A new copyright law from the European Union would lead to the banning of memes on the internet, campaigners are warning.
The EU Copyright Directive intends to protect the intellectual property rights of people who upload their material to the internet.

However, campaigners are warning the law will require "all content uploaded to the internet to be monitored and potentially deleted if a likeness to existing copyright is protected".
The campaign against a particular provision of the directive, Article 13, warns that online platforms would be economically damaged if they were forced to comply with its expensive obligations.
The law would "destroy the internet as we know it" warn the campaigners, who add it would "allow big companies to control what we see and do online".

The European Parliament Committee on Legal Affairs passed Articles 11 and 13 of the copyright reform, which critics say will effectively ban memes on the internet.

As you can guess, this is an incredibly controversial move with a lot of moving parts. If everything in the articles makes it onto the voting block, it would severely hamper free exchange of news and memes on the European internet. Article 11 proposes to establish a tax on hyperlinks with journalistic content, requiring anyone who publishes those links to pay. Article 13 would require platforms to heavily monitor their users and filter any submissions that could violate copyright infringement.
That means no more memes of Kim Kardashian, Rick and Morty, Drake, and basically anything else that isn’t free domain. Bummer, I know.

Hi @Tolimar yeah I would think so. Cause what did you think, it sounds like a done deal almost to me. Yet nothing is heard in the mainstream, not a peep.

Memes are profanity.

Only peer pressure can restrict them.

Ban it all you want, it will never die.

Because profanity and memes are good.

And evil.

Knowledge of good and evil was not a punishment. Adam and Eve took a bite off the tree of knowledge. The fruit gave them insight to see good and evil....banished but not condemned.

It's nice if you share what you learn.

The meme police, they live inside of my head
The meme police, they come to me in my bed
The meme police, they're coming to arrest me, oh no

You know that talk is cheap
And those rumors ain't nice
And when I fall asleep
I don't think I'll survive the night, the night

'Cause they're waiting for me
They're looking for me
Every single night they're driving me insane
Those men inside my brain

The meme police, they live inside of my head
(Live inside of my head)
The meme police, they come to me in my bed
(Come to me in my bed)
The dream police, they're coming to arrest me, oh no

Well, I can't tell lies
'Cause they're listening to me
And when I fall asleep
Bet they're spying on me tonight, tonight

'Cause they're waiting for me
They're looking for me
Every single night they're driving me insane
Those men inside my brain

I try to sleep, they're wide awake, they won't let me alone
They don't get paid to take vacations, or let me alone
They spy on me, I try to hide, they won't let me alone
They persecute me, they're the judge and jury all in one

'Cause they're waiting for me
They're looking for me
Every single night they're driving me insane
Those men inside my brain

The meme police, they live inside of my head
(Live inside of my head)
The meme police, they come to me in my bed
(Come to me in my bed)
The meme police, they're coming to arrest me

The meme police
(Police, police)
The meme police
(Police, police)
The meme police
(Police, police)


The meme police
(Police, police)
The meme police
(Police, police)
The meme police
(Police, police)
The meme police
(Police, police)

Well, to stop meme publishing would require falling on international copyright law, but then imposing it on a specific country that may or may not observe the fine details of a particular law. Even then, they'd have the problem if the meme is posted outside of EU servers, is the EU reserving the right to impose upon outside servers?

I smell a suit against this straight out the gate...

I bet other countries would be willing to force EU into its own "closed circuit" like China. EU no longer invited/allowed into other nations' servers.
