Well parts of it are.
As I warned about back in May 2018 in a previous post the realisation that the EU may impose draconian laws on the internet and by default free speech and free ideas has come to pass as they have now unanimously voted through Article 11 and Article 13 (and a whole bunch of other stuff) within its Copyright Directive.
This means that any post on this blog with links to external sources, or any piece on this blog that contains images that aren’t of my own creation, altered under fair use or used within context of a piece, are subject to removal or a fee being paid and as I doubt WordPress would wish to pay a fee, I’ll just wait for deletion.
I don’t invite deletion or wait for it happily as if to be proved correct and attain levity through prose martyrdom, far from it, I would welcome if all the worst aspects of this directive we never realised.
But when it comes to money, global forces and suppression of any challenge to the status quo, it is usually just a matter of time.
I make no money from this blog – if I did it would be much higher quality, less long winded and I’d actually do spelling and grammar checks and so it will continue, between bouts of procrastination, still with links and memes when relevant.
Thanks for reading.
