Lemmy.world has somehow decided to become to extreme defenders of “copyright” and decided they will now delete posts that contain archive links in an absurd move that not even corporate websites like Reddit do. Archive links provide a service to provide access to an article long after it is deleted or changed.

They made this post and locked it immediately so no one can comment on how ridiculous it is and they’re deleting threads about the decision…

The LW admins have requested that communities remove any posts that include the entire article or archive links to articles.

A short summary is allowed, but large segments of articles posted in the body will result in the post being removed. This includes links to sites that rehost copyrighted articles for paywall sites.

If your post is removed for a rule 1 violation you can edit the post and let the moderators know the copyrighted material has been removed.

Thanks All!
