The internet needs more open borders, not less. The whole problem here is that governments think they should get a say in what data crosses their lines on a map. They shouldn't, the internet can and should be the tool for routing around their oppression.

Compared to governments with hate-speech laws and copyright cartels? Yes. I would 100% rather have Nigerian scammers, Pajeet "tech support" and Russian malware.

>The most contentious element is Article 13 of the proposed directive (EU-speak for law). It seeks to make Internet services that host large amounts of user-uploaded material responsible for policing their holdings to prevent copyright infringement.

This has nothing to do with 4chin. 4chin's active content is like a pathetic 1 terrabyte.

This idea for a law (because it hasn't even been voted yet at the first reading) is about Youtube, Spotify, big players who have gorillions of content uploaded by random users.

So this would only cost the big players, small-time sites won't be affected in any way.

kek, so true
>>
>>66341966
>>So this would only cost the big players, small-time sites won't be affected in any way.
So? That doesn't make this any less bad. The problem here is the principle of the thing. There should be none of what US law calls "prior restraint", that is, banning things proactively, filtering them before they're published. There shouldn't be a pre-upload filtering mechanism mandated at all, anywhere, for anything.
>>
>>66342040
2bh, this idea is part of a concerted effort by the EU to fuck with Google and their business model. They're looking at any possible regulations that could break their businesses from working in Europe. They basically want Google, Facebook etc out of Europe.

Simple as that. And they will use whatever makes sense to crush them. And while I agree that I see no point in such filters, even though they would be only used for superbig public data hosters, I wouldn't mind if the EU found ways to break Google's legs in Europe. Same for Facebook and other companies that get more than 90% of their revenue from ads, which are attached to content users post on their sites.
>>
>>66342087
Doesn't make sense, why would they want Google out?

This is the dying publishing industry trying to extort money from content aggregators. Maybe mixed with the effort to combat hate speech.
>>
>>66342169
Because google and facebook have been making bank for years at the expense of billions of people on this planet, including Europeans.

And what did Europe get out of this? Considering the shady methods that Google, Apple and others used to dodge taxes until now? Not much. So the EU sees these big USA "tech" companies as nothing more than tentacles of US capital greed using European users' data as a resource for making billions of bucks per year. And they want to make it harder and harder for them to operate in the EU, by attacking their business model from multiple fronts. GDPR was one such front. This copyright filter law is just another angle from which to achieve the same result: making sure you increase their operating costs to the point where it becomes unsustainable for them to operate.
>>
>>66342251
I don't buy the revenge plot. Yes Facebook have dodged taxes in the past, but the logical solution would be to force them to pay taxes, not make them leave.

The more people who protest this law, the better it looks in my eyes. We need stronger copyright laws and ways to prevent certain content from being disseminated on the internet. Think of this as a necessity to prevent the rise of another Trump - Destroy fake news spread across the internet at the source and ensure only the correct content and information is available.

Also, small companies cannot feasibly screen all their users content for compliance. They'll have to license Google's Content ID, or Facebook's implementation. That means all content in Europe will be piped through the big player's servers. It's absolutely moronic legislation.

You're missing the point. They want to deglobalise the internet. China doesn't ban Facebook and Google from operating because they don't pay taxes but Tencent does. They do it to create a nationalised internet ecosystem. Sure, there is more to internet in China than Tencent but for a large amount of people, Tencent IS the internet. Russia does the same thing with VKontakte.

I'm guessing the following will happen. The politician that gets paid by the Jews for introducing this keeps saying its a great idea. Who knows very well its going to get struck down by the privacy commission and courts. But he is getting paid so gives no fuck.
