Tech News by DoctorLaptop

New EU Internet Copyright Filters Take Effect Today: YouTube, Facebook and all other major media and social media and news sites in the EU have begun filtering all media content posted online for copyright infringement. This is brand new so expect a bumpy start. They are bound to err on the side of safety by blocking some non-copyrighted content as they work out the bugs. Supposedly the wrongly blocked items will reappear as the Artificial Intelligence (AI) behind the filters learns and adapts. So if you can’t find your favorite funny cat video online, or an article on a website you often visit has vanished, you now know what happened. This law only applies to companies with gross sales of $10M or more annually, so DigameXtra.com dodged a bullet there.

Politicians from Poland, Germany, and elsewhere in the European Union are exploring ways to sidestep contentious provisions of a new copyright rule, in effect June 7, that critics fear will undercut internet freedom. The EU directive is intended to get copyright policy in tune with the digital age. These EU Directives function as packages of instructions that national governments must write into their laws. In this case, member states have two years—until June 7, 2021—to update their statutes. Alphabet Inc.’s Google and Facebook Inc. may have to negotiate licenses for songs or video clips before publishing user uploads, under the new rules. Publishers, too, have new legal rights to help them retrieve payment from all types of online services.

We need to watch this AI-driven internet filter as it develops, especially in regards to censorship, news access and election coverage; it is a very powerful force susceptible to abuse.

Aged lady needs a new home: Pimpi is the lovely, white, male cat in the picture. His owner cannot risk taking him on a plane to Holland and so she is hoping to find him a new home (without children) for his final years. Please contact
