@Gargron looks like 344 is crying
@Gargron None of these people looks like they would know the first thing about how the Internet works.

@Gargron what the fuck they are all old people
@Gargron the visual resemblence to star wars is uncanny, too
And Jar Jar Voss ist to blame!
@Gargron I think this alarm about #article13 being the end of the free internet is exaggerated. Only bigger platforms (so basically YT and FB) are concerned in the first place. And they already have #uploadfilters in place, don't they? Moreover YT is licensing content anyway.
Smaller self hosted blogs, #fediverse sites are not affected at all. So is Github and Wikipedia, even Wikimedia.
I'm not happy with the #copyrightdirective but I neither see the end of the free internet.
Can you point me to where you're seeing that small platforms are excluded from the law? Everything I'm reading is saying that the whole problem is with small platforms, since they will have a disproportionally difficult time implementing the automatic filters.
I do see references to specific exemptions for things like encyclopedias, but nothing about exemptions for small sites or platforms.
