Hey folks. Something has come across my radar that, if pass, can have a profound impact on any form of online advocacy and content creators like me.

If it passes, you likely won't be able to get content from any advocate, including me - at the very least, on all of the major platforms like Facebook or YouTube. 

The issue is that even if someone decides to put up an educational video that contains no copyright materials, the platform as a whole gets punished for any infringement - so they have no choice but to shut down all videos or posts. 

It's crazy to think that a law like this could even pass the first reading, but they are moving to the next step, which is scary in an of itself. 

This is targeting people living in the E.U, but as we know, the internet is a global technology, so this will hurt everyone if passed.
