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.
I... thanks, I guess?
Yeah, it is a compliment and an obvservation on the sorry state of the BBC's reporting quality. A bit of social commentary
I know, I was only joshin' at what could be taken as a backhanded compliment!
Maybe DeckerdBR is just practicing his negging technique!
He is looking about 64 percent more attractive to me now, so there's that...
Bit-tech; by tech nerds for tech nerds...
Radio 4; by coffin dodgers, for coffin dodgers...
Not surprising they'd cover the subject differently...
On the above under paragraph A8-0245/2018 you will find how the MEPs voted for.
Is our responsibility, to contact our (each country) representative MEPs and politely explain to them why they need to be more scrutinising on what they vote for, and what damage their vote could have done.
Just classify Youtube as a record label, then the argument of the music industry that Google gets rich while artists starve is instantly vaporized.
(this suggestion may not be intended as 100% serious)
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.
