> Under Article 13 of the proposal, sites that allow users to post text, sounds, code, still or moving images, or other copyrighted works for public consumption will have to filter all their users' submissions against a database of copyrighted works.
@Sir_Boops you know what this world needs more of?
@Sir_Boops holy crap that's just awful
@lanodan Better yet just scrap this whole law :>
And i think they only used wiki as an example
@lanodan Ask them why they only choose to use wiki and no-one else!
@coolboymew The more i see about copyright shit the more I think that whole thing should just be done away with
@coolboymew I'm not 100% sure of this but I'm *heard* that anyone can upload stuff to be auto detected and there are no actions taken ageist abusers of that system
Not sure though so take that as a rumor XD
@Sir_Boops This and the whole "link tax" thing makes me think that the EU is legislated by a bunch of morons.
