So the EU wants to increase restrictions on the sharing of copyrighted content.

Long live NoNolesNeckin.

Ya fuckin' ganderneck.
Sounds pretty dawn awful if you ask me.

The proposed regulations appear to have pretty grave consequences for the future of fair-use content creation or even just the sharing of information.

A campaign has been established to push back against this, but apparently there's only one month before they vote on it.

This is completely unrelated to what this thread is about. Let's not just jump to conclusions and ride the bandwagon.

Much of the copyright reform is pretty decent but article 13 is definitely a bad part of it. It should be amended or scrapped.

I think you're misunderstanding me. I'm just saying that it's fucked the site admins would ban European users when there doesn't seem to be a good reason to do so for now.

I think I'm understanding you perfectly. :p The reason the site has blocked European users has nothing do with the current or upcoming copyrighted content rules this thread is about.

I don't think they banned Europeans for the looming copyright rules. When I say they haven't voted on it yet, I'm wondering what reason they have to ban people from Europe because there doesn't seem to be any good one so It looks pretty fucked to me. tbh if I thought they did it because of the new proposed regulations I would say it sucks but it's understandable.

I need to clarify my thoughts better in the future it looks like. . .

Yeah, that comment was unclear and ambiguous as best. When Class says there's already a consequence of the copyright bill and you follow it up with "that's fucked, the regulation isn't even into effect yet", I think almost everyone would interpret that as you both assuming the same thing.

Oh and the reason Epicmafia has blocked Europeans is that the GDPR came into effect last week. :p

Is this gonna cause a second wave of user agreement email hell?

but why? The GDPR is about companies being forced to deal with user info better, right? Otherwise they get fined? Does that mean that Epicmafia just don't wanna play ball?

Pretty much. Most of the GDPR really isn't too difficult to comply with and the risks are low for a site like Epicmafia. If anything, this should be a major cause of concern for American users too. The fact that they'd rather just block the entirety of Europe than be transparent, honest and fair about how they deal with your personal information is pretty worrying and suggests they might be doing some shady stuf.
