Problem is the filters.

The tech is not there to properly filter this stuff, it cannot tell the different between copyrighted material and parody. The resources needed to address this and the legal issues is enormous, too much for smaller/new platforms. And while memes are excluded, memes are often based upon copyright images, and the tech is not there to tell a meme apart from a copyright. There are more issues also, plenty of things online about it.

Parody is allowed, however, there is no current tech that can tell the difference between parody and a copyright image. With millions and millions of uploads, it is impossible for these things to be dealt with by humans.

It won’t become a bigger issue until it becomes clear how things will actually be enforced. Right now it’s just a looming boogeyman.

That's what I mean. They can't currently filter memes from copyrighted images, and if anything, they're going to err on the side of caution. So it'll be essentially as Mr_Geek said: bye bye memes.

Not a fan of Article 13. Much prefer Plan 9.

agreed.. now all EU has to do is find some company as a poster/whipping boy for Article 13 for punitive damages, and the world will understand better where the hidden lines are.
