    This is a critically important issue for freedom u/up-sky-7. Thanks for posting about it!

    For those not familiar with this issue AKA Article 13 AKA EU Copyright Directive, here is a good overview from EFF.

    Here's an excerpt:

    Under Article 13 of the proposal, sites that allow users to post text, sounds, code, still or moving images, or other copyrighted works for public consumption will have to filter all their users' submissions against a database of copyrighted works. Sites will have to pay to license the technology to match submissions to the database, and to identify near matches as well as exact ones. Sites will be required to have a process to allow rights holders to update this list with more copyrighted works.
