Internet Memes are illegal in Australia

Do you know that sharing a meme in Australia makes you a criminal?

That’s right. Condescending Wonka, Li’ll Bub and Ryan Gosling’s hey girl are all crimes under Australian copyright law.

In fact by sharing a YouTube video you could face five years in jail and a fine of $93,500.

According to section 132A part 2 of the Copyright Act, “distributing an infringing article that prejudicially affects the copyright owner” is against the law.

So that pretty much makes everything you do on Facebook, Reddit, Twitter and YouTube completely illegal.

Even sharing a photo of yourself from the social pages of the newspaper is illegal.
