The EU parliament voted in favor of Article 13. An article which is heavily disputed and may have huge impacts on sites publishing (even if they are small) images or videos of others' creative work. My question is: is Stack Exchange maybe affected by this, considering there are a lot of images and short extracts of movies, comics, series and other media for example in the Movies & TV or Science Fiction & Fantasy Stack Exchange sites.

  • @DenisdeBernardy: Because a part of the final version of the article is apparently a list of somewhat arbitrary exceptions of platforms and content subject to the article. – O. R. Mapper Mar 27 '19 at 17:02
