Article 13 and the threat to the Internet. · 10:35pm November 24th

Dramatic title I know, but I urge you to watch this video from Film Theory explaining the context of the law and how a law in the EU affects creators everywhere in the world. This law could be implemented by the end of the year, gutting the internet of so many beautiful things. I am genuinely frightened because it could affect things beyond YouTube and Facebook.

Signal Boost: Potential Badness. · 5:06am June 22nd

Greetings, all.

Nyronus put a post up recently, which details the situation far better than I am likely to here with an update here... but in essence: the EU is considering changing copyright laws such that FIMFiction may not be able to continue as it has.

So, Britain is leaving the EU. · 7:54am Jun 24th, 2016

To which I can only say, thank God. For two reasons:

1. Maybe the talking heads here in Ireland will finally stop howling about how Ireland will explode if Britain leaves.

HT EU Characters Recap, Part I · 5:23pm March 10th

Hey again everyone. Sorry for the lack of updates and responses as of lately, but things have been a bit...less than pleasant on my part so far. I loathe winter, I swear to God. Everything immediately crashes into misery the second it hits, so I've been temporarily displaced, but Chapter 12 is in the works and on its way pretty soon with any luck.

Unlucky 13 · 3:39pm July 5th

For those of you have have been following the EU's controversial Article 13 battle, let me tell you that we all may heave a sigh of relief. It's over. The copyright restrictions are being rehauled and reconsidered, and thank whatever higher powers or ethereal concepts you believe in that it did. (Also thanks to Julia Reda, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Jimmy Wales, and others who protested this bill.)

Welp. I guess I'm done. · 6:51pm September 12th

It's been a good ride, y'all. But today, Articles 11 and 13 of the EU Copyright Directive passed with no amendments. We're likely about to see a massive purge of user-generated content if it even has a 'risk' of violating copyright due to the implementation of bots and algorithms meant to delete anything that 'could possibly' violate copyright in an attempt to keep the now-liable web platforms that host our content safe from lawsuits.

The wrong end · 3:29pm September 12th

Article 13 got approved... buck!

But it's not the last vote however as the last vote is around may 2019. There's still chance of changing Acta 2. Sadly, upload filters and link taxing is definitely going to be in the law.

No knowledge about the Internet and not having any connection to it but destroying it for the new generation. Nice, EU! :flutterrage:

This is bad, guys. · 10:16pm June 11th

So, I don't know how many of you have heard about the EU's new copyright charter, and I don't know how many of you actually live in the EU (and those in the UK, ya'll still technically there, so you should listen up), but this is bad.

Censorship · 11:01am September 13th

Remember that EU copyright law from a few months back? Well, if you haven't heard, it was narrowly passed yesterday. But don't go holing up in a bunker with an assault rifle and printouts of your Read Later shelf just yet.

EU Copyright Directive Still Ongoing · 6:34pm June 20th

Today the EU Copyright Directive which I discussed a couple weeks ago has, unfortunately, taken it's next step into becoming law.

The Good News; I was apparently somewhat mistaken on the timetable and today's vote wasn't the final vote, which means there's still time.
