OT: Europe trying to ban memes?

I cannot even imagine TKP without memes. 50% of our posts would instantly disappear!

Time is running out to post all your best memes. It's, as they say, the final countdown...

Sensationalist article whose author obviously has a problem with Europe in general. Better source needed.

This topic risks political discussion. But since it relates to our favorite forum, it is worth noting that Europe and 🇬🇧 don't have a "first amendment". Folks can do further research on their own.

Just another reason we in the good ol USA are better off try and take my memes I'll start a revelation!

Can't really comment without toeing the politics line so will just point and say HA-HA!

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
“I served in the United States Navy"

I'm glad we live somewhere that dank memes are a constitutional right.

Sounds like a shitty deleted scene from V for Vendetta.

Pretty sure that scene would open with a slow pull back shot of this...

Since there is a tendency to only read headlines, i'll go ahead and point out that this website is just taking some pretty humdrum news over debates around copyright laws (ie, rights holders should be allowed to protect their intellectual property, but maybe a law as written would be too broad) and turning it into a sensationalist headline to fire up their audience. You can also tell pretty easily from the picture chosen and the tone of the article that this isn't a real piece of news.

To be fair ... my entire point in posting this was to reflect on TKP without memes. It would be like the ocean without water.

Your choice of which link to share screams otherwise.

But yes it would be shame if we lost our dear mayonnaise memes. There ought to be venues for people who try to monetize memes or content they didnt create or have the right to to face the consequences and a duty on sites to act when notified, but there always should be carve outs for fair and innocent use people arent trying to pass off as their own and just for fun.

It isnt like there arent similar concerns on this side of the pond though, IIRC the creator of Pepe The Frog has launched a few lawsuits in relation to some other people and sites using it.

I get that this article is a suppositional discussion & not actual news. I also understand & acknowledge that TKP is not America. That said, I add this meme in lieu of said discussion piece of thread:

Yeah, this feels WAY too political. Plenty of places already to fight about politics, I really don't want this to slide into becoming one.

But how would they get their points across and celebrate things?

What's there to celebrate in Europe?

Tiny cars? High taxes? Regulations? Stinky cheese?

Maybe the World Cup before Mexico beat Germany?

the automobiles and the women

Excellent point, but you can get those here. For now.

I say that having owned only German cars for the last 17 years.

Ah, but you have no Autobahn in which to truly enjoy them.

That is absolutely true.

and the women

Ok, I feel like there's a narrow selection. Specifically which region(s)?

Yes. They are VERY nice, thank you. Basically, when referring to women from Europe, it's Sweden & Sweden??
