    It's a sorry state of affairs when a bit-tech article on this issue is a much more accurate reflection of the issues with articles 11 and 13 than the BCCs Radio 4 reporting on the same issue...

    I can't tell if it was willfull miss-reporting by the radio 4 hosts or just plain ignorance on the subject. Either way it was poor.

    Yeah, it is a compliment and an obvservation on the sorry state of the BBC's reporting quality. A bit of social commentary :)

    Bit-tech; by tech nerds for tech nerds...
    Radio 4; by coffin dodgers, for coffin dodgers...

    Not surprising they'd cover the subject differently...

    Easy solution:
    Just classify Youtube as a record label, then the argument of the music industry that Google gets rich while artists starve is instantly vaporized.

    An easier to digest version on how UK MEPs voted has been posted on reddit here.

    Labour MEPs should be hanging their heads in shame IMO, that the two main parties in the UK mainly voted for such a restriction on public discourse is enough to send shivers down my spine at what the internet of the future will look like in the UK.

    I contacted my unelected bureaucrats to tell them to vote this down, which they did. No surprises the 3 conservative MEPs voted for it. More angry emailing required I think.

    Soon enough all laws will back in UK hands for unelected bureaucrats in the UK to deal with.

    God save the Queen...

    This is purely an observation.
