So the fediverse is now one lawsuit away from not existing thanks to article 13. I run three websites that will be affected so I am unsure what to do.
What the actual fuck
@debugninja can someone explain what these laws could mean for free software projects?
I don't really understand why it would affect platforms where people willingly upload content without adding copyright to their work.
@vancha Not a lawyer but it seems like would force me as an operator of three websites that allow user uploads to screen every possible post to ensure it is properly liscensed. Basically every site would have to implement a YouTube like copyright filter system.
@debugninja What.. That doesn't sound realistic at all... :s
@debugninja It's not national law yet, and may be difficult to implement in the member states as it's de facto not achivable. We will see. Alternatively we all will host in clean countries. May be a good market for middle-Africa, solar powered free data houses.
