    Default New EU copyright laws July fifth

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct..._Single_Market

    Does anyone here has any idea about how this will affect the forum? Certainly many people here are from outside the EU, but also many are from within. We basically cannot post pictures or videos any more after July fifth, because the big copyright holders have won, there's no more fair use of anything on the net from within the EU, be it video or images or even text. All content will be copyrighted in the future, so it has made a huge limitation on the active use of the net. We cannot even post pictures of landmarks, because they have copyright too, even if you have taken the photograph yourself. Only people from outside the EU can post such content.

    Basically what can happen is that if you post a picture on this forum, you can be fined in the order of a years income or so, even if you didn't upload it and just refer to it. It has already happened because the laws are similar in some individual countries (but only for artwork and images) but it will become extensive throughout the EU.

    “And, furthermore, that some people have a sex life and others don’t just because some are more attractive than others. I wanted to acknowledge that if people don’t have a sex life, it’s not for some moral reason, it’s just because they’re ugly. Once you’ve said it, it sounds obvious, but I wanted to say it.” — Michel Houellebecq

    This forum is on an American server, rules don’t apply.

    The EU rules that passed on May 25th apply to here, and any non-EU entity that deals with people who live in the EU, however. I am sure vBulletin and the server this site is on did the update. I had to change some things at my work.
