Exclamation European Parliament backs copyright changes


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

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....
