For years, Mattel marketed a Barbie typewriter. When they switched from mechanical to electronic typewriters, they chose to license from a Slovenian manufacturer, Mehano, who readily supplied their E-115 (and later 116-118) model.

The more the laws diverge from our needs, the harder we will ignore them and work around them. Stuff like this hurts those the most who try to or have to follow laws, like small organizations and companies or less resourceful individuals. We will work around this, break this, ignore this, just as we did and do with copyright, patents, freedom of speech or assembly limitations, etc. #Article13 #Article11

#Article13 adopted. European Parliament's Legal Affairs committee (JURI) demands companies to automatize and systematize the mass-surveillance and mass-censorship of their users in name of archaic copyright... next step: plenary vote. #FuckThatEU #CopyWrong #CopyFight

We already know that automated content filters don't work. They put absolute power over content in the hands of a system that is opaque and broken.

A couple of days ago YouTube took down all of the Blender Foundation's videos from the Blender Foundation's channel due to a copyright claim by... the Blender Foundation.

The BF is an official YT partner, but days later they still cannot get a straight answer from YT about what is going on:
