The EU has passed Articles 11 and 13

Fair use on the Internet is dead.

The BBC have hidden this in a minor article in the 'Tech' section.

The link tax is ridiculous and the policing of user content is technically and socially impossible to comply with without banning all content. Even youtube/google's best engineers haven't been able to make it work properly, such as the recent finding that Sony "owns" recordings of all of Bach's works since the algorithms can't tell the difference between one performance and another.

Here it's being discussed banning all EU access to our company sites.

The EU is operated by a bunch of morons working in luxurious offices disconnected from the real world.

Fuck them and fuck every EU citizen who endorses such a system.

This is because the EU is terrified of the rise of Nationalism in every country in the EU due to impact of massive immigration.

They will do anything to suppress the spread of information and discussion.

Nationalist parties now have majority support in Italy, Hungary, Poland, the parts of Germany that were formerly East Germany, and Denmark.

Nationalist parties have risen in popularity in Holland, the UK, Sweden, Greece and Spain.

YouTube will have to block all commentary/review channels from being viewed in Europe or face massive fines for copyright violations.

I share with you this article about the EU origins and "secret story". It explains a lot about today's EU stance and clearly shows that the whole project was not for the benefit of EU citizens:

(I know that some people hate and rate the article's author as a notable French conspirationist who seeked refuge in Syria: I don't care. He's stating facts that can be verified.)
