The only positive aspect I would see about the adoption of is the obvious boost it would give to the development and advance of decentralized technologies -where upload filter won't exist-. go , , , etc.!

@jz It depends on the wording of the legislation but upload filters could still apply to the fediverse and peertube. They would have a harder time enforcing that, but in most cases fediverse admins are still "legally visible". Filters might be supported by Facebook and Twitter because it's something which decentralized systems can't implement independently.

@bob It will all amount to get servers outside of the EU. We'll manage. anyway....

What exactly do you mean? I assume they'd be bound by the law just like anybody else.

@pfm They can be located outside of the EU jurisdiction and/or be used for civil disobedience.

Do you think relocation is a feasible solution? I feel it would mean a lot of effort.

Civil disobedience... well, this would definitely be used against those involved, e.g. to picture them as criminals and to compare them to, say, pedophiles (like it already is with cryptocurrencies).

@jz the worst thing is that running instances of them running in EU might be harder because of this… only really big corporations will profit from this law

Well, as the current state of the fediverse is almost without those kind of problems (at least I almost never see hate speech and things like that) I think it won't affect us that much.
But keep in mind that for this to continue to be a reality means that we need smaller instances.

@jz steemit, ipfs, because they are P2P, you can ask ISPs to block all federated media, you cannot do the same with P2P.
