“What’s Article 13?” Article 13 is a tightening of copyright laws nicknamed, “The meme ban”.

Article 13 was given this name because it bans all images, clips, and any part of original copyrighted work. Even if the clip, or image shows the copyrighted material in a good light. Article 13 would even ban online review that criticizes the copyrighted material, and helps the production company to make a better, more appreciated movie, show, etc. Yet even with all this criticism, Article 13 managed to get passed and is in the final stage of development. You might be thinking why should I care? Well your favorite viewing sites, and apps will lose a lot of their content because of this. Take the popular viewing site youtube for example. Youtube isn’t going to waste their time putting in a copyright detector that bans things from people in the UK, but not from people in the U.S. Instead they’re just going to copyright strike everything that breaks article thirteen.  Youtube would then become a large sharing site for large companies not, people like Markiplier, or Pewdiepie. People using youtube for what it used to be, would be punished with a copyright strike. Instead large companies like Disney would take up most if not all of media sharing sites.

In my opinion article 13 is not necessary.

    I agree partly it is kinda bad that they are banning people and not others for the same things like for instance i’m going to ban this guy but i’m not going to ban this guy even though he is doing the same thing but i still think that there are still things that should still be bad when you say you did something when it was not that should not be aloud but other than things like that the rule is kinda dumb.

    Why is this a bad thing? This should be a great time of rejoicing! Imagine a world void of meaningless means? Too many people are failing to respect intellectual property rights, altering and posting materials not belonging to them. Opponents of article 13 suggest that its passage would stifle creativity–sorry, but I’m not buying this specious reasoning. Chase, good job on a well needed article.

    Over 80% of teens throughout the world are all addicted to memes. I love seeing memes. They are just things that can keep you happy in a day, or just give a nice small laugh. Article 13 mostly destroys memes, which could start to recreate all over the world. I don’t want to this to happen. I hope a petition can be made to go against it.

    I think this article was great because it shows that there is still a community for fresh memes and not memes so old and stale that they crunch when you see them.I am so proud of this community;User Mbrady just doesn’t understand that this is a bad thing since he or she doesn’t understand the true meaning of memes.
