It’s not just personal disagreement. I disagree with Huffington Post about everything (except the 20 funny tweets from X group posts, those are really funny), yet I believe they shouldn’t be censored. I believe Google is a dirty cheater and …
I believe a lawsuit should be ran against them claiming that they are responsible for all libel and copyright infringement happening on Youtube or Blogger or whatever site they own, because if the author is paid, disciplined or fired at pleasure of the company, he is an “employee” or “contractor” and not a “user”. If Google claims that “we are just a tech company carrying signal” then make them do that instead of exercising editorial control over the content.
Well, the European Union did just that (I was right again!) with the copyright directive known as article 13. And our dearest Susan is crying like she probably did in the Javits Center on the best day of 2016.
Her tears and pleads are music to my ears! Burn, baby, burn! I hope this directive will bring Youtube down, or at least forces them to leave from Europe, losing their ability to spread propaganda.
I also love how evil is defeated by another evil whose turf is violated. This case, it’s music and film publishing oligarchs got up in arms against Youtube and Youtube has no way to retreat. People don’t watch it for propaganda, they watch it for free music and films and the propaganda is just stuffed on it, like the ads next to the TV content. Without the ability to give stolen music and films, Youtube wouldn’t exist and couldn’t preach. It’s like Macron (who I hate) demanding European Army instead of the NATO (which I hate more). Whoever wins is a win for me.
PS: the single torpedo launch on Jervis + Uber-potato enemy CV is a great opportunity for a fun picture:
