Title: EU Article 13
Post by: Joe on June 22, 2018, 10:35:51 AM
Be very afraid of this shit. If it becomes law I can tell you right now B4Print.com will no longer exist.

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 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.

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.

Hmm... I wonder if it's possible to turn off the internet? :'(  

That's going to be the only way to comply with this if it passes since, when you get down to it, the internet is just a platform for sharing data between computers/users. Data, of course, is created by people, or generated by programs (created by people), so quite literally everything would be subject to this thing.

Maybe just turn off the internet in the EU?   :shoots_self:

What if you use the South Park approach? 
And claim that "every" post here is intended to be humorous? If we all adopted signatures stating "lol" or "Funny, eh?" 
 
You can't ban attempts at humor, no matter how hard Tom Cruise tries... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKbLquqxBAQ

Combination of this and Net Neutrality row in US is a real shitstorm potentially.  Makes me more likely to go dark web.
