YouTube, Google +, EU and its Article 13/11

“And, if implemented as proposed, Article 13 threatens hundreds of thousands of jobs, European creators, businesses, artists and everyone they employ. The proposal could force platforms, like YouTube, to allow only content from a small number of large companies. It would be too risky for platforms to host content from smaller original content creators, because the platforms would now be directly liable for that content.”

YouTube could turn into cable-TV

-Yeah.., the more I think of it, this “sunsetting” of G+ could really just be an “easy” way out (for google) of the incoming shitstorm that could be if article 13/11 becomes a reality.
