Hey, This is a serious thing which is going to hit the whole Internet, Article 13.
First of all, Article 13 is divided into Article 11 and Article 13
The European Union Also Known as EU has voted in favour of a new copyright property that can change the whole internet which is currently around us. It will not only hit some sectors but each and every sector would be affected by it. The Google, The Facebook and The Video Giant YouTube too will be affected.
If you are a video creator then if you are using a copyright music, then youtube will simply ban your video making a Copyright Claim but now under the new law, then copyright claim will not be on you but it will now be on the company itself. It will now be on youtube.YouTube will have to pay for that penalty.So the creator here is not affected but the company is affected. So now you might be thinking that you are safe but the Company is going to make you less popular and establishing their own Videos, there own original series.
Here is the LINK TAX
A link tax is a new property which is inside this. Now the Company will have to pay for the link which is now attached inside it.
If you open Facebook, you will see a post showing news from the New York Times, with a link attached to it to the website of the New York Times. Now what we usually do we just read the headline and go down the newsfeed.No one clicks the link to read the whole post.
So under the new copyright, The Company will have to pay the publisher for each and every link attached. This is the LINK TAX
This thing will affect everything such as the news by Google because the news they provide is not there original but actually is from top news providers like the New York Times.
All the memes will be banned.
