Via @edyong209,* this, which I encountered at the Atlantic’s Technology strand.
As Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg explains over at the Atlantic site, the video plays on the Leistungsschutzrecht controversy — a German take on the copyright/internet search/data wars recently much discussed in another context. She writes, “the term refers to controversial copyright legislation in Germany that would require search engines and aggregators to pay licensing fees to publishers for displaying snippets of text.”
But it may be sufficient that it’s a lovely piece of animation — the cherry on top of a midday open thread.
