    Well, on YouTube you will already lose your ad revenue if your content contains the tiniest clip of someone else's work. Hopefully, if these laws really go through, there will be a large enough backlash to solve all these problems, and the privacy issues at the same time.

    Big government isn't bad it's just the bitches in the European union who want to make all their money through lawsuits rather than taxes.

    @electrineer do you realise how much Google invested in creating the Content ID system for YouTube? This ensures that youtube will never have a competitor

    @Root i actually like the government model of Canada. Canada is fine. I have my doubts about how we go about things here in the U.S. And I ain't even want to think about Mexico.

    Probably not time to disband the EU (it's got a lot of good qualities) but this is a huge fuckup. Even after all the direct lobbying from EU citizens.. still nothing got through those fucks' dense heads. Especially those conservatives which were the main perpetrators. Disband the EU Parliament? I'm all for it. Each member state still has their own governments anyway.

    its the newest episode of "old people vote about stuff they dont understand", or rather, they might have a grasp but can never realize the full scope, further some 3rd party made sure they dont look further into it (par example: look who benefited from the german Leistungsschutzrecht).

    its a complex problem that probably needs a higher general public intelligence to get permanently fixed, so never

    People who think government is bad tend to be from countries with terrible governments. But pulling shit like this is exactly what makes people hate governments.

    @Condor In a real democracy getting the people's will through a politician's thick or whatever skull should not really be up to the politician's choice,rather it's compulsory to follow people's will. Trying to "persuade" politicians is not what democracy should really be about. EU is nowhere near a democracy of course, like the vast majority of the earth's governments.

    @Teabagging4Life The government serves the people, not the other way around.

    Officials are public servants, and serve only at the will of their constituents. When this begins to change, you know the system (and therefore officials) are corrupt.

    However, politicians (especially when corrupt) lie well and have very far-reaching influence, and can therefore easily change the desires of the people. In such a case, listening to the masses is not always desirable, for they can easily be pushing for those same corrupt political goals.

    As with everything, due diligence. Especially in politics.

    @Root Good point. That's why I think that it should be talked about more. Regardless of our own political compasses (of which mine has many poles) it's in everyone's interest for our governments to stay in line. Corruptness is something that I don't think anyone would want to infest our governments.
