EU's new Internet law: article 11 and 13

h.bergstrom95 2 years ago updated by World of Potter 2 years ago 2

With the EU voting through the new internet law; article 11 and 13, how will that affect the WoP-sites?


Article 11: a strict copyright law that will hand out taxes for sharing news-articles, wiki pages etc that you are not the owner of. A real problem for a fandom-site since the fandom does not own the copyright of the designated world and also takes payment in form of VIP.

Article 13: a strict copyright law that requires that all websites uses a filter so that no copyrighted material can be shared (or remixed) on that website, meaning profile pictures, memes, gif's, PT/BS-codes etc. will get removed due to copyright.


How will this affect the WoP-sites?

We will not do anything for now. The law has not been passed yet, but only voted to move forward.

They will vote again end of year or start of 2019.

I just want to follow.
