Brexit is a mess, but UK startups may find refuge in Estonia’s e-Residency

I’m not going to try to explain Brexit or where it’s headed, because it’ll be outdated before the day is out. It’s a mess no matter what your stance is, and it’s shrouded in uncertainty. What is clear is that everyone needs to prepare for the worst case scenario. The UK government has tried to come up with solutions to make the breakup easier on the country’s startups, but it hasn’t addressed the biggest issue: losing access to the EU single market. Luckily, Estonia offers a way for the UK to ma...

Here’s why you’re having issues with Reddit and Wikipedia in the EU

Redditors and Wikipedians (is that the correct term?) in the EU might have a hard time using their favorite websites today. The reason is the EU‘s upcoming Copyright Reform, which will be put to a vote on March 26. The directive includes the controversial Article 13 that will make platforms responsible for any copyright infringement by users. This will most likely damage the openness of the internet and make it harder to operate platforms dealing with user-generated posts — possibly outlawing co...
