I see. Well that's just absolutely terrible. I mean, I "get it" in theory to protect the "artist's rights"... but clearly none of the people in the EU voting on it have ever stepped foot into the internet. My guess is a shit ton of site owners such as yourself - pull together to peacefully protest until a players association signs off on a collective bargaining agreement.
Just a wild hunch..
Also - there is no new or unique thought left.
We have members here from the EU so if me, as a website owner, doesn't comply I can be fined.
Article 13 though is even worse as I would have to have filters in place to check every post against an online copyright database and if it came back with a copyright match the post would never get posted. So any post you make would not show up until it passed the test. Which theoretically could take hours.
That is what they said about the EU GDPR that just went into effect May 25. I considered taking the forum down then but decided to ignore it and take my chances.
We're 'merican! How would the EU have say-so over anything we do? Are you using european servers for this site?
Becky look at her butt! It is SO BIG.
