All memes destroyed.
You tube creators will be gulaged.
Political conversation smothered, all labelled as hate speech.
Humour gone.

Only the grey Communism of work, and listening to the government speeches.

Nice.

I do like the protections for privacy though.

Not making non-profit exemptions however was a mistake. So was not allowing fair use. This whole things seems too DMCA like, where business doesn't feel like innovating to take in new realities, so they legislate their business model back into viability with criminal penalties.

This is comedy gold! I love the good/bad-cop routine!

The European Commission, which began the debate two years ago, says the overhaul is necessary to protect Europe’s cultural heritage and create a level playing field between big online platforms and publishers, broadcasters and artists.
Yes! While flooding the continent with foreign refugees, the European Commission is now protecting Europe's cultural heritage with copy-right law!

I can not wait for the next episode!

Online ‘platforms’ steal content all the time. It’s hardly surprising that somebody realized that.

Coming to a theater near you:
Quote:
The nature of enforcing censorship based on a narrow and subjective term such as “hate speech” is likely to keep suspicions high that these types of decision aren’t about creating a safer world, but rather a world in which superstates like the EU control the content people see online for political purposes.

This is reminding me of the 'Net Neutrality' issue when it first appeared.

Too many of us didn't understand what it was really about and those claiming to explain it seemed more interested in obfuscating uncomfortable details.

So we had to ask ourselves 'do we want to invest the energy necessary to see what's really going on in the dark corners?' Many of us - myself included - thought "Nah...somebody else's problem."

Turned out that was a mistake. So for those us who find that Reuter's article kind of nebulous and would like to know what some are actually complaining about, I think it's this as described here by this guy, 'Computing Forever':

Just on this one thing...

Just on this "Link tax."

If it were to catch on and come to Canada imagine using CKA without links - because who here would be willing to pay for them?

How boring would things be without them. And it's not like you could just copy and paste a clip without the link because the no fair use clause and bots enforcing it would have the site owner shut down, I imagine.

Could there be a CKA under such a regime? I doubt it.

This is designed to kill the creativity on the internet.
