EU article 13 and copyright

Will this have any impact on the scene?

Youtube and Tim Berners-Lee have already expressed concern over it.

Well from what I have read it appears to be the LIABILITY part that is the cause of concern.

So sites like Youtube will probably just shut down all channels located in the EU and be done with it.

Of course they will probably not actually take them down but rather put them in stasis until any litigation pending has a chance to go around.

I certainly wouldn't want to be a site owner or run a board and be held liable for anything said and/or posted by it's users.

But of course in regards to EAB only RCK can make that final decision.

It had to happen sooner or later, people now just blindly assume that magic tooling exists and works flawlessly so you can make up any policy you want and expect computers to magically solve it for you.

From an article in Le Monde :
Quote:
[...] platforms and rights holders will have to "cooperate in good faith" without leading to an "automated blocking" , however the technical filtering remains mentioned in the text of the directive.

Will be concerned all sites that allow users to post text, sound and video, with the exception of very small sites and encyclopedias online. This means that virtually all content posted by Internet users will be inspected, and that, if necessary, their publication will be blocked.[...]

I would automatically not allow anything to be posted due to this if I was running a Forum as I wouldn't want to risk litigation.

Guess we'll all have to move to the dark web.
