The convention is organized, staffed, and promoted by members of the Prismatic Tsunami gaming community. The convention is financed by TsunamiCon LLC, sale of tickets and merchandise, vendor fees and sponsorships. Prismatic Tsunami is a Kansas-based, global community of gaming enthusiasts who like to explore the hobby, produce game-related content (such as podcasts and periodicals), and organize events.
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.
