Exclamation European Parliament backs copyright changes


"Controversial new copyright laws have been approved by members of the European Parliament."

https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-45495550

I found this to be very relevant particularly to websites that oh I dunno, have links to say open source projects - I wonder how that will affect github, websites hosting linux isos, etc? i.e. the "link tax" Hrmmmmmmmmmm

To clarify - this could also affect articles about anything, - "oi, you got a loicense for that Linux article?"
I say this all in jest perhaps - but, honestly I do not know how this will won't negatively impact EU citizens.....


How does this affect EU users on linuxquestions.org ?


Also - sorry....

i will just requote myself from that other thread:

i am by no means in favor of this new law.

BUT...
what little i understood - i can only repeat: the term "link tax" is misleading.
it is not the link itself that falls under copyright law (not tax afaiu), but actual content from the linked article.
the sort of automatically generated previews "platforms" like facebook use.

beyond that - i admit i did not read the law text itself.

i am not sure how much i can trust any politician to interpret it for me (but they probably wouldn't tell a straight lie).
i am not sure that i can trust a random youtube "activist" that then interprets these interpretations for me, with plenty of bravado and a loud voice.

i am sure that the proposed technological solutions are very unrealistic.
these little previews are called "snippets" in reda's article.
i don't think anybody wants to outlaw quotes, so i guess there will now be another heated argument about the difference between a "snippet" (falls under new law) and a "quote" (probably doesn't fall under new law).

Post YouTube CEO says EU regulation will be bad for creators

"The European Union’s contentious copyright directive became a major talking point for YouTube creators last month, as people rushed to inform their audiences just how consequential the new directive could become.

Now, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki is adding her concerned voice to the chorus. Wojcicki spent the first portion of her letter to creators addressing Article 13, a new requirement that would give YouTube the sole burden of preventing copyrighted content from being uploaded and shared by its creators. Right now, YouTube allows remixed copyright material to exist on its platform under the Fair Use Act. But critics of Article 13 suggest that as YouTube becomes more liable for any copyrighted content, a harsher filter will apply to any video being uploaded to the platform, and that could stifle creators’ work. "
