EU votes to effectively ban memes electronically as Article 13 ‘copyright filter’ passes.
EUROPEAN LAWMAKERS have legislated to pass Articles 11 and 13 of the EU Copyright Directive legislation, paving the way for a total decimation of internet content as we know it.
The motions were passed by the JURI committee (which sounds like something straight out of a 2000AD comic) despite a significant push back against them by the tech industry, including an open letter signed by some of the biggest names in the industry.
Article 11 would create a rule that would mean, for example, on-line webbsites will now have to pay to quote an article from, say, the BBC. Even if it’s stating the bleeding obvious and generic, like “Separating families is bad”.
