    EU and the proposed Article 13 !?!

    @Silverthorn1111 I'm in Croatia, and likewise nobody is talking about this here. Could be perhaps due to the generally low computer literacy, people just don't care or know, and journalists fail to convey the importance even if reported. But I suspect that, even if there was a public discourse on the subject locally, main-stream journalists and other "representatives" of the people would toe whatever line our allies take. This is why I'm really nervous about the situation in France and Germany, the only two places I've seen any public discourse of significant scale. To be fair, I see it mostly happening in Germany. France I take it, has a different set of problems occupying the public discourse. But at any rate, this is advancing mostly under the radar of the public unchecked. I don't have much social pull personally, wish that I had. I will still contact my country's MEPs, though I don't hold any illusions that they will listen. I've heard even the my MEPs that voted against, saying they are not completely against it, so I'm not really seeing my voice being represented at all. The lobby of the rights societies is really strong here, and the Ministry of Culture has already signed a statement saying they support the EU Copyright Directive in its September iteration. "Wind's howling." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    @Flyddon Oh, the irony! Geoblocking is my bane.

    “It is not despair, for despair is only for those who see the end beyond all doubt. We do not. It is wisdom to recognize necessity, when all other courses have been weighed, though as folly it may appear to those who cling to false hope.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring The trilogue negotiations are concluded and a final version of the text is agreed upon, in all its gruesomeness. Breaking: The text of Article 13 and the EU Copyright Directive has just been finalised https://juliareda.eu/2019/02/eu-copyright-final-text/ (Below is the above linked post by MEP Julia Reda in full.) TL;DR

    @OutandBack No problem, but trust me, I wish this was dead and I had nothing to write about. I'm just keeping the thread alive to let everybody know there is still time to fight this. I'm closely following it and the more I look at it, the more I realize the scale of the potential detrimental impact this will have. Brexit or not, everybody would feel this to an extent if it went through. It would lessen the impact probably, yes. This is an economic crisis in the making. Think of all the people just making ends meet by being creative online because they couldn't get a worker-bee job. Their source of income — gone. We are literally living through the renaissance of our time, and everybody blindly pushing this 'directive' is actually pushing to suffocate this movement of a generation (or several) if favor of institutionalized art and journalism. Sad thing to witness. I hope there will be better news in the future.
