The European Parliament just voted-in Article 13 (and 11), intended to 'better protect' intellectual property.
Memes and GIFs et al will be made more difficult to use.
Beware. It will be the responseability of content providers, sites, forums to ensure contents are within legal bounds.

For a good description what it'll mean, refer https://www.rt.com/news/454753-article-13-europe-copyright/

The article states that memes and GIFs are specifically protected and it even states that they have even more protection than before.

It also aims at protecting the artist rather than the company
