New European Union law may affect this site.
« on: September 20, 2018, 08:42:50 AM »
So there are 2 new laws that may be added to the European Union soon.

1. External links has to be used by permission.

2. No copyright materials are to be used whatsoever without concent from the owner.

I'm wondering if these (or one of them) will affect this forum if passed the final vote.

Ah yes. Did not post that one properly.
  The new law will put stop to fair use of (C) material, i.e. making own tiles using original graphics or making memes, unless approved for usage by the (C) holder, for every new creative content that we make.

Did a quick search and found this. https://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2083906/claims-com-net-websites-jurisdiction
I think this means the the US claims that this site is under its jurisdiction. This claim is not necessarily exclusive.
Is the server of this site based in the US?

But still it is handy to know for the WICA, as that one isn't US registerd but in EU(PL) if I'm correct.
