Today, Europe Lost The Internet, Now, We Fight Back

Today, Europe Lost The Internet, Now, We Fight Back

Today, in a vote that split almost every major EU party, Members of the European Parliament adopted every terrible proposal in the new Copyright Directive and rejected every good one, setting the stage for mass, automated surveillance and arbitrary censorship of the internet: text messages like tweets and Facebook updates; photos; videos; audio; software code — any and all media that can be copyrighted. 
Three proposals passed the European Parliament, each of them catastrophic for free expression, privacy, and the arts: 
1. Article 13: the Copyright Filters. All but the smallest platforms will have to defensively adopt copyright filters that examine everything you post and censor anything judged to be a copyright infringement.
