I keep hearing that memes will soon be illegal under article 13. I propose we lift the meme ban here on CF so that we can get the most out of them before it's a finable offence and not just a banable one. Reply below to show your support.

It's all clear with management.

I get that people want to end using copyrighted art which I am all for and just drawing yourself, but if you're just doing it for good clean fun rather than passing it off as your own creation, that's not the end of the world and I wouldn't even give a slap on the hand for it let alone ban it.

What do you expect from people who call themselves "an empire for the good"? Road to hell is paved with good intentions.

You clearly don't understand how EU legislation works.
What laws are made depends on the lobby, which is an active part of the law making process. Meaning, the companies actually have a say in the laws that are made.
Example: a couple of years ago, bananas were normized by the EU. They had to fit into categories. That ruling was pushed ahead and secured by the packaging industry, who wanted to optimize their profit.
You will find many other such legeslative examples.
And no, this is not sarcasm.

Don't you see the humour in my post? I am appalled, Ma'am.
(While the lobby stuff is unfortunately no joke, it does make the legislation a joke, more often then not. )

Of course....
But you see, it has nothing to do with humour or lack thereoff, but is an attempt of world control. Take away people 's way to make memes, you take away their power to mock the ones in charge relentlessly. I mean, memes tend to go viral. You don't believe they would leave such dangerous items unregulated? :)

Officially the EU say that under the voted proposal, large internet corporations will be liable to fines if they do not take down enough illegal content. They said that it will not require large sites to install upload filters and that it would not affect content considered fair use, and that standalone hyperlinks/hyperlinks with the article name would not be affected by the link tax, but web portals and social media sites that transcode key parts of popular articles onto their site would. If they're telling the truth here (usually the EU are) I don't have an issue with the current proposal. If they're not, I'm sure there will be a huge uproar when the change takes affect.

What a ridiculous statement.

There's no tow trucks on the moon.

So, is this a bad thing or a good thing? Is this some kind of anti-piracy EU law?

It's a copyright overhaul and I'm all out of gum.

Once we get enough people we can start posting memes in this thread. Kyo said its ok and he looked at me when he said it so that proves that it happened.
