"Lawmakers argued the legislation was necessary to protect the revenues of US entertainment industry, and bring US law into line with European law — but it was really about protecting Mickey Mouse. The first Mickey Mouse cartoons were released in 1928, and the new rules extended Disney’s control of the copyright until at least 2023."

@kensanata Where's your podcast located? Is it new? I didn't know about it til now; eager to subscribe.
The other day I wanted to share a video.
YouTube wanted me to login, give them my real name, provide an email address (wouldn't take a throwaway for an answer) and a phone number to text me (I don't have a phone).
I went to a #Peertube instance instead. They accepted my throwaway email address and my video. Didn't ask for personal information. And the upload and video playback worked great.
So, thank you @Chocobozzz and everyone else who worked on Peertube.
