Be careful of #DeleteArt13

The #DeleteArt13 is fear mongering scam. And I fell for it hook line and sinker.

I sincerely apologize for spreading this misinformation. I’ll keep the post as a warning and I’m using myself as an example.

Read the real Article 13 here. Provided by KAI_BORG.

I don’t live in the EU so this won’t affect me, but I don’t want this to happen.

I feel this an act that would destroy a major piece of the boards, which is definitely important to talk about.

Meanwhile, I am glad I don’t still live in Germany!

I don’t and won’t pretend to have a deep understanding of this proposal.

I don’t even live in the EU, so it really doesn’t pertain to me.

Because of that, I feel inclined not to get involved with the petition, but if the proposal does indeed result in what people fear it will, then I do seriously hope the EU’s justice system will shoot it down.

It won’t, going by other research/explanations on it, this is mainly fear-mongering.

In somewhat related news, apparently Net Neutrality was officially repealed today here in the U.S. Though I doubt the effect will be quite as drastic as this. With hope, it won’t go through. I don’t know a whole lot about the EU political system, but I’m sure there’s something that can be done to prevent this.
