So I've been hearing that in April apparently, the final vote for Article 13 will take place. People are fighting to try and stop it. Here's the deal. The EU parliament doesn't care about your feelings. They don't care about what we say. They are likely being forced to pass it on behalf of the media companies who have been upset over the freedom of the internet since it began in the 1990s.
Right now, there's a change.org petition going on. Quite frankly, it's not worth your time. No one ever takes those things seriously and I mean it. I mean, there's literally millions of signatures on that thing yet none of them will matter to the politicans who are for this specific bill. They simply want money and that's it. If that means restricting the Europeans from the internet, that's how it'll be. Face it, the internet as we know will die off after April 2019. If not, I'd be surprised. And don't think just because I'm from the United States that it doesn't matter because it will once the 2020s begin.
Please understand that I'm just as upset over this whole thing as everyone else. I don't want to lose the freedom of the internet, but you also have to consider the facts as well. The media doesn't care about your feelings. They only care about money and that's all they will ever care about. YouTube is done and likely will the entire internet. Hope you take my words into consideration.
