END OF MEMES... l'article 13 proposé par l'UE

END OF MEMES

 

Black Pigeon Speaks a publié ce clip succinct et informatif sur les implications de la législation proposée par l'UE, l'article 13. Tout en prétendant aborder la violation du droit d'auteur, il cherche en réalité à imposer des taxes sur les fonctions les plus élémentaires d'Internet.

 

En vertu de l'article 13, le contenu téléchargé sur des plateformes en ligne devrait passer par des filtres de contenu mécanique pour déterminer s'il enfreint ou non les droits d'auteur, dans le monde entier.

 

Jusqu'à présent, ce n'est pas sans rappeler les mesures que YouTube a déjà mises à la disposition des détenteurs de droits d'auteur de films d'une manière plus secrète et non réglementée pendant plusieurs années. Là où il s'écarte du modèle corporatiste de la Silicon Valley, c'est qu'il ne s'agit pas simplement d'une censure automatique, mais d'un système d'imposition supranational.

 

Tout utilisateur essayant d'afficher du contenu "contrefait" en ligne devra payer une taxe. Cela inclurait l'affichage de liens hypertexte en ligne vers d'autres sites Web - la fonction la plus fondamentale de l'Internet, étant que "HTTP" signifie "Hypertext Transfer Protocol".

 

La directive ne tient aucun compte des concepts fondamentaux de l'ère numérique, notamment Fair Use, Creative Commons et Open Source.

 

Les plates-formes en ligne seront tenues de mettre en œuvre des systèmes de filtrage complexes et coûteux et seront tenues responsables de la violation du droit d'auteur, encourant potentiellement des amendes qui menacent leur viabilité économique. Cela pourrait détruire de nombreuses petites entreprises qui ne peuvent pas supporter le coût de la mise en œuvre de tels filtres et détruisent également les aspirations des nouveaux entrants avant même qu'ils ne commencent.

 

L'article 13 menace les blogs personnels, les livestreams des joueurs, les producteurs de vidéos, les plateformes de discussion comme Reddit et 4chan et même Facebook. Le partage de mèmes, de remix de parodies et même la possibilité de créer un lien vers cette vidéo serait pratiquement impossible, en vertu de l'article 13, que le contenu soit utilisé dans un contexte d'utilisation équitable ou non.

 

En dehors de l'aspect fiscal, les plaintes que beaucoup ont à propos de l'article 13 sont des choses que j'ai déjà vu en place depuis des années, de tels filtres permettant à des pays entiers de bloquer tout le contenu de certains sites Web.

Les réseaux privés virtuels (VPN) que les gens utilisent actuellement pour contourner la censure et la surveillance peuvent également devenir obsolètes, car les filtres seraient très probablement chargés de détecter l'utilisation de ceux-ci.

 

Black Pigeon Speaks ne prévoit qu'une décennie, au maximum d'un Internet essentiellement libre et ouvert s'il n'y a pas de riposte immédiate et significative contre des mouvements comme l'article 13. Il exhorte ceux de l'UE à contacter vos représentants au Parlement européen et aussi à alarmer et d'informer tout le monde que vous connaissez de la portée de cette proposition de loi.

 

Black Pigeon Speaks has made this succinct and informative clip about the implications of the EU’s proposed legislation, Article 13. While it alleges to address copyright infringement, it actually seeks to impose taxes on the most elemental functions of the Internet.

Under Article 13, content being uploaded to online platforms would be required to pass through mechanical content filters to determine whether or not it violates any copyrights, worldwide.

So far, this is not unlike measures that YouTube has already been making available to copyright holders of motion pictures in a more covert and unregulated way for several years. Where it diverges from Silicon Valley’s Corporatist model is that this is not merely automated censorship but a supranational taxing scheme.

Any user trying to post “infringing” content online will have to pay a tax. This would include the posting of inline hyperlinks to other websites – the most basic function of the Internet, being that “HTTP” stands for “Hypertext Transfer Protocol”.

The directive completely disregards foundational concepts of the Digital Age, including Fair Use, Creative Commons and Open Source.

Online platforms will be required to implement complex and expensive filtering systems and will be held liable for copyright infringement, potentially incurring fines that threaten their economic viability. This could destroy many smaller companies that cannot bear the cost of implementing such filters and likewise destroy the aspirations of new entrants before they even start.

Article 13 threatens personal blogs, gamer livestreams, video producers, discussion platforms like Reddit and 4chan and even Facebook. The sharing of memes, parodies remixes and even the ability to link to this video would be pretty much impossible, under Article 13, whether the content was used in a fair use context or not.

Outside of the taxing aspect, the complaints that many have about Article 13 are things that I have already seen in place for years, such filters allowing entire countries to block all content from certain websites.

The Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) that people currently use to sidestep censorship and surveillance may also become obsolete, as the filters would most likely be tasked to detect the use of these.

Black Pigeon Speaks foresees only a decade, at most of a mostly free and open Internet if there is no immediate and significant pushback against moves like Article 13. He urges those within the EU contact your representatives in the European Parliament and also to strike the alarm and to inform everyone you know about the scope of this proposed law.
