After the EU has moved to ban memes, we have developed some foolproof, copyright safe versions of famous memes

Last week, the European Union passed the Copyright Directive, a wide-ranging copyright law which could affect everything from YouTube videos to yes, the humble meme (read more about it here).

If implemented fully by EU member states, one part of the Directive - Article 13, will have wide-reaching and damning effects copyrighted images, and, therefore memes.

We The Unicorns has always been proud to follow at least 80% of modern laws and so in-keeping with our pledge to uphold justice, we have created a selection of memes that we believe are Article 13 friendly.

God bless the EU.

1. Nice and legal
