    Apparently, it’s official now.
    The European parlement decides to implament article 13 with the new copyright laws. The only copyright law that didn't got implamented was article 11.
    Doing so will kill half of the internet, as bots get injected seeking for copyrighted stuff.
    This only affects Europe, though. All sites hosted in America won’t get affected by this.

    Anyways, the war is over, #FreeTheInternet is defeated, and the internet won’t be the same anymore.
    Edit: Someone changed my title, huh.

    Only 13 was passed and not 11. Also as much as I hate 13 being passed it still is not quite sure how they're going to do it. They're gonna work out article 13 because as it stands they can't implement it.

    In theory this sounds awful, but I wonder how they'll implement it and how successful they'll actually be in taking down copyrighted material. The internet is massive, after all.

    EDIT: Just read "hosted in Europe". I wonder how much of an impact this will really have then

    awww shucks, seems that i'm concerned about article 13... i've sent mails for Article 11 to many of the deputees. One of them had answered me "We are against this article and we will fight for that."

    Yeah 13 was only passed and by itself it just forces google facebook and so forth to take down copyrighted material wich isn't that easy to implement. YouTube is going to suck tho but in the end we could also work with a VPN and start using the internet that way to escape that regulation.

    For some reason that typo make me read it as "The EU parliament decides on impalement by article 11 and article 13..."
    And it fitted quite tight... I mean right. Erm.

    Yeah, unfortunately, YouTube won't be the same as before (my uploaded mixtapes ouch). Now instead of "We've updated our privacy policy" we will have "We've updated the whole damn Internet"

    But yeah, that's sad knowing that Internet was a place of free "everything", now that the Govs. are in it (wow we've discovered Internet, what if we conquer it ? great idea m8), little bit by little bit we're losing that liberty...

    Yeah it is totalitarian since they pushed those laws without the people knowing about, without giving the people the time to protest and without hearing the voices of the people regarding that. Democracy is an ancient thing that doesn't exist anywhere anymore in the world. It's all totalitarian bullshit. Especially with elections you can see that. In Belgium we're having elections next month but the parties are already doing deals with each other so that when they don't have enough votes they combine and then the votes of all those parties count as one to form a government. It's all bullshit and the world needs to change big time. It's all totalitarian these days all over the world. And with corporations becoming bigger each and every passing moment I see that happening more and more

    Lobbyists triumph over people. The history of "democracy".
    Sad it is.

    (your election part reminds me of the French election, they did the same) Totally (tarian). The thing is that the EU Parliament is superior to every country (all the countries vs. you lel that's fun). We cannot do anything now, since we're over. We lost, and they won. It's like they don't care about our voice, our needs, us...

    I just think the parlement forgets, that...

    50% of the internet is built of memes.

    Europe 2018: Oh crap.

    In all seriousness, this is ridiculous. Literal meme police.

    This is absolutely fine in my books. For one, this will promote perhaps an alternative-internet structure that we desperately need, perhaps Freenet or Tor will become big and finally we won't have to deal with this. And two, this will make people dislike the government even more. How far separated from the people do you have to be to think this is a good idea? I guarantee you this will cause some more questioning of why the government is and why it does. I really hope they double down on this too, because that will increase those 2 effects. I hope 1 becomes reality :)

    ISPs can throttle VPN traffic, and a VPN doesn't fix files being taken down/no longer being hosted.
