Over the last 17 years Evercon has grown from a small, school-run event with a handful of gamers to a 1,000+ attendee gaming convention. Evercon brings gamers from across WI and nearby states who gather each January in Wausau, WI so they can start the new year enjoying their hobby with likeminded, dedicated gamers.
The convention features role-playing games, board games, fantasy and historical miniature gaming, collectible card games, and video gaming. Evercon is for the fantasy and sci-fi gaming enthusiast. Evercon features a Dealer Hall, Artists and Authors, and some of the best gaming you can find to start the new year off right. If you are a gaming fan, don’t miss out on Evercon!
The European Union is set to enact legislation that will make copyright fair use illegal. It is so far reaching that even simple things like memes and tweets with quotes in them will be illegal. The Electronic Frontier Foundation, Google, Wikipedia, YouTube, and even the United Nations have condemned this legislation.
If this legislation passes it will force small businesses like Tabletop.Events to stop serving customers in the EU. Worse, if this sort of legislation passes it will likely influence laws in the United States, and could cause us to shut down entirely. To be clear, we do not violate copyright law, but this law would hold us accountable if someone uploads something to our site that violates copyright law. As a small business we simply do not have the resources to spend the $100,000,000+ needed to build a copyright filtering AI the way YouTube has, and even their AI is not perfect.
If you want to maintain a free and fair internet use the hashtag #SaveYourInternet and contact your local government officials telling them you do not want Article 13 to pass.
