    Article 13? I'm not sure I follow? :-)

    Oh, the article about censorship?

    It's that new EU law that makes certain types of content illegal, regardless of fair use, and website hosts are liable for all of the content. For profit fanfiction websites are supposed to go against it, and YouTube has said it will be blocking a lot of its content to the EU because otherwise it would be liable. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Directive_.. I don't see how Movellas could exist at all with this unless it moves headquarters and blocks any EU country from seeing the content, because most of the content on Movellas (images in the blogs, memes in mumbles, covers on stories, and fanfictions) seem to come under it, regardless of whether it's transformative or comes under fair use. Non-profit fanfiction websites are assumed to be exempt, but I don't know how true that is.

    Philip Defranco has some really good videos about it, and there's also this: https://youtube-creators.googleblog.com/..

    "However, this creator economy is under threat from a section of the EU’s efforts to revise its copyright directive, known as article 13, which holds internet companies directly responsible for any copyright infringement in the content shared on their platform."

    It's just the EUCD has different ideas on what counts as copyright infringement (it really ignores fair use), and Movellas would count as an "internet company" as far as I'm aware.

    Also, my Movellas email address is still active (sanguine@movellas.com), but my internship ended nearly two years ago. Thought I would mention that, in case you need the space for any new employees :)

    The article still has to go through another round of voting in January, so we don't know for sure what will happen yet :-) The office knows about it, though.

    That’s good :) I’m not active around here, but I wouldn’t want to see Movellas go.

    Also, here's a good summary of it all:

    It actually makes me concerned for Movellas regardless of Article 13, since I don't see how this is within copyright laws, especially since safe harbour is a USA only thing.
