Google and the like are already alienating half the world with their social justice warrior stances by limiting free speech, so I like seeing them getting screwed in any way possible! Bring em down!

Well they seem to be able to figure out how to send me "Stephen Colbert-Topic" channels so they can figure out how not to. So maybe I can close what to watch and not some troll farm in St Petersburg.

348 European Union parliament members voted for Article 13 and 310 voted against is. No Europe citizens wanted this law to go through only old parliament members who don’t even know what youtube is want it.

So you´re afraid of changes over there huh? Is that why you are scared of losing your coal mines that much that you rather destroy the planet instead of learning a new job? The world isn´t stop turning because of you literal retards.

Google should just stop all service to the EU. At this point they need google more than google needs them. No google maps, no gmail, no youtube

From a American citizen with deep English roots: May must have been bought off by the EU with money (40 billion pounds are at stake the EU ) or an offer of a life time position with the EU. Why else would she Sellout her country, ruin her own political party, and put the citizens of England into permanent slavery to the EU??? Follow the money. A great American patriot- PATRICK HENRY said in a famous speech in 1776, "GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH" A great American politician - Thomas Jefferson said in 1787 - "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants!" Both were of British families but felt the need to resist royal imposition of unjust laws and actions.

I think they are also made this law so we cannot use memes against SJWs, some of the people who voted in favour of Article 13 are probably SJWs themselves

The big tax-evading companies can afford those investments, they stashed away enough money in Panama and the Bahamas. They could also defer the complaint to the uploader of the copyrighted material, but then they have to stop anonymous uploads. The maw also helps against ISIS uploads and those by Russian trolls.

Google's abusing it's dominance over the internet. They are hindering the competition by shipping their own products through their manufacturers network.

I remember the times when, Europe as a whole was considered the greatest champion of freedom of expression among other vital values for a fulfilling survival of mankind. But then there is always a time, when great civilisation start crumbling and had to censor things, under various guise.

EU: we're cracking down on big tech. Big tech: Sells VPN and makes more money. Governments who vote for people who want to ban things have some low intelligence citizens because it just creates a more concentrated less controlled market.

Make a seperate site called Youtube.com/eu. Deny access to the normal site if anyone tries to access it from an european Ip adress. Make a paid service plan where you can request any video to be tried by a legal team. If the video get accepted, it will be available for eu citizens to watch for free on the seperate youtube site.

Its incorrect. For the sole reason that the EU isn't going to be around in the next decade. This fundamentally anti democratic paper tiger is disintegrating at a fast pace with the UK exiting, France and Italy revolting, Hungary revolting as well, Greece, Slovakia, Sweden and Spain. So the division in the bloc are huge, the elections on 23rd May will mark an end to a Corporative Technocrat EU, and it will eventually go the same way the Soviet Union went. It just grew way too fast, and it morphed into a totalitarian superstate, that is why we're witnessing the biggest political changes in our history that are going to sweep away the millionaire ruling class. So in the coming decade the internet is going to be just fine, and it will be much more relaxed once the worlds superpowers change their outdated political systems. We are on the verge of a new era and if anyone thought that the days of Democracy, Rule of Laws are over, that one clearly doesn't see the future. The future THANK GOD will be much more relaxed on a planetary level. There will be business instead of war.

People are going to get frustrated when they realize what's happening. By then it will be too late. These directives are almost impossible to enforce. The end result might be that a lot of YouTube channels disappear.

Solution on top of my head "build a great firewall of Europe". Like china limit the users access solely in EU servers so the content to be filtered is reduced and in uploading addtional content implement a delay time for review of the said content especially in fb. And for the cost of this system implement a hyperlink transaction. Where before you can access the site there is a small fee.

I would at least suggest that those who think its such a bad idea at least have a look at A Different Bias video entitled ' The EU Copyright Directive - Articles 11 & 13' before passing judgment/get some perspective on the subject. Just a thought

There are many problems with the internet but this is way down on the list. Copyright just helps the rich get richer. Bigger problems are things like scammers, illegal content, hackers and protecting idiots that post too much information about themselves such as embarrassing pictures etc or cyberbullying.

A potential solution. Substratum. Decentralizing the foundation of the internet.
CaliCoin Digital (2 months ago)
@Mathematical Ninja the thing is with substratum all traffic is masquerading and hides in plain sight, so you wouldn't be able to tell the difference from substratum traffic and traditional internet traffic. At least that's the idea.

Copyright strikes are already all over YouTube. I don’t, understand YouTube’s already gone to shit after the last adpocalyps. So why do GOVERNMENTS wanna try and regulate this? So they can take down things they don’t want you to see.

The fines prescribed in the EU LAW will negate any disadvantage to smaller player. A violation by a 100,000 user platform watched by 10,000 members will get $100 fine, If watched by all 100,000 members will mean $1,000 fine Same violation by Youtube watched by 10,000 member will mean $10 million fine ...watched by 1 million viewers will mean $25,000,000 ...watched by 10 million viewers will mean $250,000,000
