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I’m not going to try to explain Brexit or where it’s headed, because it’ll be outdated before the day is out.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 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...
