BT terms and conditions changing. Seems a bit sinister

Recommended Posts

Just got this email

“Contractual changes to your service. 
We are writing to inform you of upcoming changes to your service. As an existing customer you are required to take action by agreeing to changes to new your contractual terms.
On the 15th April, the European Council – the political body composed of government ministers from each of the 28 EU member states including the UK – voted to adopt into EU law - Articles 11 & 13lthe copyright directive as passed by the European Parliament in March.
Tech companies including internet service providers such as us, are now required to manage their own copyright rather than rely on third party services.”

what does the dosbods massive think of this?

Articles 11 & 13 are the ones that make memes illegal to view in the EU, another EU authoritarian act that does nothing to enhance life for the little people. There was very little, if any media coverage, odd that.

Already seeing the effects with many international (especially US) websites not wanting to be bothered with the whole thing, and simply blocking users from the EU.

We're well on the way to an EU intranet, like North Korea, only more "diverse".

Like North Korea but with more Islam.

Shit no, tell me that's not true Bjork...?

So then I'll have to grow a scruffy fucking beard as well as adopting a Kim Jong-bastard-un hair-cut...!

Diversity sucks man....

They were on Loraine.

Wondered why they were on.

She could suck the phlegm from my lungs out via my bell-end any-time she likes, the filthy Jock milf...!

And that Moira off Emmerdale...

This will kill off small websites.

that's the idea. Big media wanted this.

We'll all move to the dark web soon, history will repeat, once everyone was on CompuServe and AOL, the web was for nerds. Eventually everyone moved to the web, anyone know what happened to CompuServe?

As the web becomes more like CompuServe and AOL, people will move on.

They've got to ban VPNs first, I predict this will start some time in the next few years, some awful atrocities will occur, the offenders will be said to have used a VPN to hide their identity, then they'll dig up dark web horror stories which nobody can veryify, then it'll be some wikileaks thing and they'll blame VPNs for that, piracy, child porn, etc... The govt will propose a VPN ban, then the media will ramp it up, they'll basically make the general public believe that anyone using a VPN is a terrorist, or pedo, or hacker, etc etc etc and everyone will just say "I don't care, doesn't affect me, i've got nothing to hide".

It'd be very hard to actually block VPN usage, OpenVPN can run on almost any open port, so ISPs couldn't block it very easily. Far easier to make it illegal and punish people for using such services.

You can't ban VPN. Pretty much every company has a VPN.

SSL vpn, traffic will appear as SSL traffic, they can't ban ssl as all eCommerce would be open and insecure. All websites are moving to ssl, most already have. Including this one :-)
