This is what I would do.

Or companies losing millions of dollars and going out of business because they can't access google (and similar) services.

This could seriously become a game of ultimate chicken.

Except Alphabet isn't me, it's a fucking giant conglomerate ruled by people with no values or morals and data-hungry to know everything about everyone and to spread their reach over the entire world, and they don't like freedom that much anyway, so making the internet a stupid place is fine by them as a consequence.

And there are a lot of red states, then we have a real competitor in the twitter sphere, and at that point people love options, so when twitter bans you for writing 'learn to code' or 'there are only two genders' people will flood to our platform.

That's not how it works.

No company will do business in a market where their potential operating costs are higher than their profits. As the EU now has some arbitrary tax which can be slapped on any tech company at any time for a massive amount of money, most companies will have no choice but to opt out.

That's the point of this legislation anyway. The void will probably be filled by some European company that is aligned with the EU with a board of directors with deep EU parliament connections.

Citizen's United was the group that was releasing "documentaries" cataloging Hillary Clinton being a crook during 2008's primaries. The FEC took issue with this and sued CU. CU protested pointing out that Fahrenheit 9/11 came out in a campaign season and is also a "documentary" with political overtones. CU was entirely correct in their assertions that the film should be allowed and the FEC had no basis in reality to do shit plus they neglected to do shit 4 years prior about that fat fuck Micheal Moore so they weren't being consistent with their application of the law. It goes up to the Supreme Court and fucking blows up in EVERYONE'S faces. The FEC is the one who should be blamed for that fiasco not CU itself.

Article 13 of the copyright reform takes care of "upload filters" that can scan material for copyright infringements. Google, Amazon and the like already have something like that for video and audio as well as images.
Article 11 is another intellectual property right that lets newspapers sue services like google new or bing news for displaying news snippets and images without an explicit license to do so. However this was already done once in germany and has failed disastrously. Virtually all newspapers have given free licenses to big companies like Google or Microsoft to gain discoverability

I worked at a monopolgy, I won't say which, but it was a national player with zero competition between it's representation in almost every post code except for very small botique mom&pop stores (which it would regularly buy-out or run out of town eventually).

This monopoly had a pricing team whose sole job it was to be the cheapest market option to ensure customer loyalty among it's many and varied products. They were so intent on this, that if someone else, even online retailers, had a cheaper item on sale, they would drop their price of the item to make it lower, even if that meant they sold a national quanitity of the particular item below the cost-price for that week/month at a massive loss to the business.

Their whole strategy was very wholistic. Sure they took a significant hit on that one item (enough so that it would put most smaller competitors in the bankrupt line, or at least make their profit margin miniscule for that year) but for this giant national company they could afford to take that loss because in the end it kept their customers loyal and wholistically the company didn't lose out because all those customers bought all the other items which had healthy margins and the company still saw massive profits.

This is the danger of monopolies. They can ''offer you a good deal'' in a deliberate attempt to kill their competition and see you shop with them. Consider what happens when they no longer have any competiton? Because they never gave you those low prices for your benefit.

Weird because the best selling newspapers in pretty much all countries are opinionated, lurid tabloids. Also flat earthers were a thing before the internet and haven't grown significantly since. Democracy foremost relies on free exchange of information, the press is just a minor extension of this.

i can only speak for my own country, but compare the Guardian, the Telegraph and the economist to buzzfeed and The Mail. Our funded newspaper are actually quite good and do alot of quality investigative journalism.

And it's a whole lot more nuanced than "free exchange of information" - it's the way its presented, disseminated and processed that's highly important as well.

The flat earth point is just saying that lots of good information on a topic and quality facts don't necessarily persuade people. But Fringe groups like the alt-right have definitely grown on the internet, given that before they couldn't find any others to share their views.

and the "left" , the "greens" (who i voted for btw), the "pirates" and "regionalists" are controlled opposition, fringes incapable of passing or blocking any regulation even if they were remotely sincere in their opposition (which i doubt) and who intentionally tarnish good policies by association with the most contemptible garbage idpol rhetoric imaginable.

the measure passed on the backs of the "conservatives" "social democrats" and "liberals"
all the other parties were "mixed" but on the balance against it.
yet even these "virtuous" defenders of freedom had just enough cross over to the other side to ensure that it passed by a comfortable margin.

This won't affect Google because like all laws now, it will be selectively enforced. Google and Youtube get a free pass.

That's the dumbest thing I've read today. Sure, it will be selectively enforced but to fine Google, Youtube and Facebook, that's why they are screeching like madmen. The way I read it, forums like 4chan would not even qualify as online content-sharing service providers.

It will be used by big copyright holders to get more money for even less work. All of the "artists" that have been pushing it are part of a big corporation that will benefit from this. Small independent artist will get fucked because google will be scared more about Hollywood lawsuits than some random youtube artist with 20 views that has neither the money nor the time to be bothered with this. Article 13 or 17 as it is now benefits mainstream media and artists not independent ones or startup companies.

With enough money you can pull 4chan into that definition and even if not, the thought of getting sued is enough for some to shit their pants and give in. We've seen that happen already with nyaa. We will need to see how all of this shitshow turns out but no matter what I'm not happy with even more terrible digital copyright laws that rich people can abuse.

Youtube is fucked. They have to remove and block all copyright content that they have been notified of (so you will basically have to give your copyright to some company, this much for helping small artists right) if they don't and can't proof that they acted fast and "did their best" they can get sued. And if your 100% "legal" video of your cat gets false flagged by whatever, youtube needs to have a system in place through which you can fast and easy make a complaint that has to be reviewed by a person and your country has to provide you with the ability to sue them (looking forward to the queues when people catch on and will try to abuse the system for money) if you either don't agree with the outcome or they don't provide it at all. Video services like youtube are basically a financial suicide now even more than before. It's impossible to make a profit on this shit.

>browsing on 4chins
Probably not at all but it's hard to tell now. 4chan already avoids some EU laws and are totally fine. We are basically the outskirts of the internet that nobody cares about for now but once the big fish are gone it might change.
Doubt much will change maybe avoid public torrents of local stuff but a VPN can solve that problem fast.

That's not what the 10 mil thing means. For 3 years and if the site earns under 10 mil it will be required to proof less to not get sued (at least that's how I understand it). Every site that's covered by the definition still has to follow the laws it's just easier to get away. 4chan is older than 3 years (unless the split counts) so if it is under the definition it will have to proof more stuff and even if it would be under the "better" laws if the site gets over 5mil monthly users it will need to prevent the future uploads of material that has been "illegally uploaded" before which would be a pain for everyone. It's still all pretty vague and up to each country to make the details but I can see it getting abused easily.

The 3 years or 10 mil is an OR criterium, not an AND.

ANY platform over 3 years old must comply, and the ones UNDER 3 years old are only exempt if they don't make money.

Good. Anyone who is too retarded and cheap to get a no-log VPN deserves to get fucked by fines. You're doing something that is violating someone else's right. At least have the decency to conceal your actions. If you spend 120 bucks a year on a no-log VPN with RAM Disks you can essentially save thousands a year on media consumption. I fucking hate people who refuse to pay for pirating so much. They are too underdeveloped to appreciate unlimited amounts of content for a measly 100 euros. They want it for free.
