Article 13: Banning Memes & Cultural Expression (9.1)

By Amy Wagner – California State University at Sacramento

Text-based Description of Visuals

This video-based project examines the European Union’s Article 13, a component of a larger piece of legislation called the EU Copyright Directive. Wagner emphasizes how Article 13 poses a threat to the genre of memes because memes rely on re-purposing content and would potentially be blocked by the automated filters required to adhere to the requirements of Article 13. Wagner further argues that such blocking of content will limit who gets to speak and how on the internet.
