Article 13 is a copyright law also known as “Meme ban” for those who haven’t heard of it.

“Simply put, the Directive on Copyright places more responsibility on websites such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter to make sure that copyrighted materially isn’t being illegaly shared on their platforms. Until now, the onus has mostly been on the copyright holders – usually the companies that produce audio, video or written content – to enforce copyright protection but under the new law this responsibility will shift onto the major platforms themselves”, quote from wired article.

He isn’t it about copyright? As long as you post orignial content that you actualy made (like you’re supposed to do) you’ll be fine.

#11

That’s right, making original content you’ll be fine, but for people who make edits (fanedits, movie clips etc) it’s kinda unclear how it works, since it is making OC with someone elses OC.

It will probably pass, but we have until 2022 to make some quality memes :smiley: then it’s gg for:

Yeah Artical 13 is really going to hurt Europe except the UK if Brexit goes through

#18

I got a bad feeling about this, I kinda wanna just punch the guy who made it in the face multiple times :joy::exploding_head: but I won’t, because I’m a normal person…

God this shit sucks

#19

I don’t think so…

I watched Pyro’s video on it and he said we’re still affected by it as Brexit is in the Transitional period… Ffs, I actually liked Brexit for a second :joy::joy:

RIP me & @ShonziTho lol.
