@pperrin
It takes a few years for all member states to implement the law. That's how the EU works: member states are independent, but have to implement all directives.

@frank87 And you need eggs to make an omelette, but that isn't relevant to what I tooted either...

The commission want this law, it has been passed by the EU, it is heading for all member states... yes.

Now what does this mean for people hosting mastodon instances?

@pperrin It means, you have to keep track of your local lawmaking.

@frank87 OK - but that is just a time delay, nothing of substance about the issue.
