EU backs controversial copyright law (BBC)

This is going to Change The Internet Forever In the End

All we can hope for is that the member states will reject the vote results.


The two clauses causing the most controversy are known as Article 11 and Article 13.

Article 11 states that search engines and news aggregate platforms should pay to use links from news websites.

Article 13 holds larger technology companies responsible for material posted without a copyright licence.

It means they would need to apply filters to content before it is uploaded.

This will affect all the social media sites that originate in the EU, as well as those that maintain servers there, or do business there. It will also affect the non-commercial public networks and their outposts (like Diaspora).

It can affect all fandom related sites as well.

Questionable DNA Analysis

"One set of identical twins, two different ancestry profiles."

At least that's the suggestion from one of the world's largest ancestry DNA testing companies.

Last spring, Marketplace host Charlsie Agro and her twin sister, Carly, bought home kits from AncestryDNA, MyHeritage, 23andMe, FamilyTreeDNA and Living DNA, and mailed samples of their DNA to each company for analysis."

Rather Questionable DNA Analysis from public ancestory companies.

This makes one wonder if these companies are worth squat, and of course if all the dna tests done regarding Elizabeth Warren was as flawed. Maybe Trump needs to take a DNA test?
