Memes 'will be banned' under new EU copyright law, warn campaigners

Memes 'will be banned' under new EU copyright law, warn campaigners | 08 June 2018 | A new copyright law from the European Union would lead to the banning of memes on the internet, campaigners are warning. The EU Copyright Directive intends to protect the intellectual property rights of people who upload their material to the internet. However, campaigners are warning the law will require "all content uploaded to the internet to be monitored and potentially deleted if a likeness to existing copyright is protected". The law would "destroy the internet as we know it" warn the campaigners, who add it would "allow big companies to control what we see and do online".
