    In America we are allowed to copy and modify copyrighted work in order to create a parody so I don't think this law would stop us from creating memes. But I do think it will stop some websites from making money from memes that use copyrighted work. That's the way it should be anyway.

    The GDPR in England has been a great way to get rid of a lot of old emails.
    Just quote "GDPR & Delete my data" and you can disappear.:thumb:
