    Just saw this this morning:

    A DAY UNDER THE EU COPYRIGHT DIRECTIVE
    TL;DR WE ARE BLOCKING REDDIT IN THE EU TODAY FROM 09:00 - 17:00 CET

    We’ve repeatedly warned about how an overbroad EU Copyright Directive could restrict Europeans’ equal access to the open Internet—and to Reddit. But time is running out. To drive home this point, we are blocking Reddit in the EU today from 09:00 - 17:00 CET. (moderators can still go here to login, dismiss this message, and access the site). To make sure the European Parliament doesn’t turn this restriction into reality, click below for what you can do.​

    So the same day May anounces she's tying us to the EU and that's a good thing, the EU is publicly blocked from one of the largest sites.

    That's hilarious. Won't change her mind, but...

    Wait, are they actually trying to outlaw Creative Commons? :eek::mad::mad::mad:

    By the looks of it they are trying to do all sorts of restrictive things. Probably to satisfy a few bigwigs or large companies or someone with a grand idea and no clue.

    Is this what youtube's had warnings about, whenever I log in?
