The indexing of WikiMANNia as a disguised act of censorship

Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons

MediaWiki Extension CountingMarker (VG Wort)

1. entry / overview

1. entry / overview

Anyone who is a member of the Verwertungs­gesellschaft Wort (Copyright collective) and operates a wiki faces several problems when he or she wants to participate in the METIS programme, i.e. registering his or her online texts for monetization.

METIS stands for „Meldesystem für Texte auf Internet­seiten“ (“Reporting System for Texts on Internet Pages”). VG Wort requires a minimum length of the texts as well as a minimum number of article views (“hits”), which must be proven by the installation of “counting pixels” on the article page. For the installation of these pixels you can order “counting markers” from VG Wort, each of which consists of a set of public and private keys and a URL to a counting pixel on a VG Wort server.
