Quote
The European Parliament has voted in favor of the Copyright Directive, a controversial piece of legislation intended to update online copyright laws for the internet age.

The directive was originally rejected by MEPs in July following criticism of two key provisions: Articles 11 and 13, dubbed the “link tax” and “upload filter” by critics. However, in parliament this morning, an updated version of the directive was approved, along with amended versions of Articles 11 and 13. The final vote was 438 in favor and 226 against.

The fallout from this decision will be far-reaching, and take a long time to settle. The directive itself still faces a final vote in January 2019 (although experts say it’s unlikely it will be rejected). After that it will need to be implemented by individual EU member states, who could very well vary significantly in how they choose to interpret the directive’s text.

Welp...

Sorry, but I don't understand, what does this have to do with memes?

It's suppose to stop big companies from exploiting memes, but it's like a double edged sword. It can also bite Europeans on YouTube as well since they can get monetization from said memes even though that is the last thing they want.

Allow me to explain:

See this beloved Simpsons pic that has been part of internet culture for years?



An AI doesn't see it. It sees the intellectual property of 20th Century Fox Disney (?) used without its written consent. Think of the same algorithms used to flag youtube videos, but running on every page of the EU's internet.

This new law basically makes it much easier for companies to take down shit from the internet.

Well that's sad, memes are super fun, it will suck if parts of the world can't post them without them getting taken down.

At least the US (CIA) had the decency to study them to see how they could be used for trend research and/or mind control (Vault 7) instead of straight up banning them.  What an obnoxious directive.

I rarely talk about things, but... I think it's a directive rather than a regulation.

http://www.enhesa.com/blog/eu-directive-vs-eu-regulation-whats-difference

A directive lay down certain results that must be achieved but each Member State is free to decide how to transpose directives into national laws.
- Applicable to all Member States
- Sets certain aims, requirements and concrete results that must be achieved in every Member State
- Sets a process for it to be implemented by Member States
- National authorities must create or adapt their legislation to meet these aims by the date specified in each given Directive

A regulation are laws relating to specific cases and directed to individual or several Member States, companies or private individuals.  They are binding upon those to whom they are directed.
- Immediately applicable and enforceable by law in all Member States
- As good practice, Member States issue national legislation that defines the competent national authorities, inspection and sanctions on the subject matter.

It depends on the Member States whether if they will adapt the directive or not. If it was a regulation instead of a directive then... GGPO Europe.

Regardless, the impact of this directive in each Member State will be something to look upon in the future.
I'm often busy with other things, so I rarely post.

And I thought the DMCA was bad in the US, this is just stupid. This does not protect anyone but big company wallets. In other words, this whole debate for them is a big waste of time. Welcome to corperationalism.
