EU Vote in Favour of Article 13

Whilst that may be true, they know what money is. The music industry has been pushing for a lot of this. I'm not sure it takes much to connect the dots.

The music industry already steals the revenue of pretty much half the videos on youtube, so this isn't too surprising. What is surprising is that these 60 year old boomers have a say in something they don't understand in any way shape of form.

But critics say the law is vague and poorly thought-out, and will end up restricting how content is shared online, stifling innovation and free speech.

Does free speech exist in Europe?

On paper, yes.

 

In practice, never has, and at this rate, probably never will.

Break off your chains

And look what I've found in the dirt.

Seems she was struggling

Something is wrong with this world.

 

Fierce Bloody Angel

The blood is on your hands

Why did you come to this world?

 

Everybody turns to dust.

The blood is on your hands.

My biggest concern is geo blocking.
In order to not provide these new rules on their own sites, it could be possible that many websites instead just geo block EU-citizens. Well, we could avoid this with a vpn connection but that's just dumb.

I wish I'd live in canada or somewhere else where the government shares the best of europes systems like free health care.
Who knows, maybe Linus does need a programmer to make his own game where you get points if you drop expensive hardware?

guess its time to start the portugexit movement

It looks like there might be an opportunity to have this reversed but I doubt the politicians who voted this in will be willing to change their tone to that of what the people want.

Advocates of the directive say it will balance the playing field between US tech giants and European content creators

US tech giants should make a deal with Trump, they will stop targeting conservatives and implement policies that reflect the 1st amendment, if he starts targeting the EU with economic sanctions and defense withdrawal. Time to bend these EU bureaucrats over and spank them.

It doesn't help that many countries in Europe only have you vote for a party and not a candidate, though I don't know the specifics for election to the EU parliament.  Do EU citizens even have any say who sits on the EU parliament?

In this case there have been quite a bit of missinformation from both sides.

last time the turnout was like 36%, even general elections here barely reach 50%, part of the problem is people are not paying attention, the media here isn't much better than us media which certainly doesn't help

It's bad enough that it actually got approved in the first place, but IMO the worst part about all this is that the politicians who voted to approve this have absolutely no idea how much this will affect the internet.

The ones writing the legislation (the people who actually do the writing, not the salesmen puppets "elected" into the EU "parliament", which is functionally little more than a rubber stamper) quite likely have a rather good idea of what they're trying to achieve with "legislation" such as this.

Seems like the beginning of the end of an internet without censorship.

Free speech is great for the masses. Not so great for anyone needing to control information to maintain wealth and power though ? (sheep will not revolt if they do not know they can or should revolt in the first place).

Knowledge (or rather, the control thereof) is power. Quite literally. ?

Meh, hopefully they'll realize soon enough that it's basically unenforceable and they'll amend it to target what they actually want to get rid of

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

I'm not sure if the voting process differs from country to country. But here in Sweden we can vote on a specific person. 

 

So the process is something like this. The LTT party are running with a list of 20 or so people. They put this in a priority order. 

 

As a voter you can then choose to vote for the LTT party without deciding on a person. Then it defaults to the first name on the list (or if they get two seats the two first names gets in). 

 

But if a majority of people who decided to vote for the LTT party cross in Coltons name, who is last, then he gets the seat.
