Regards #Article13, I wrote up a little command-line false-positive emulator; it tests 10 million events with a test (for copyrighted material, abusive material, whatever) that is 99.5% accurate, with a rate of 1-in-10,000 items actually being bad.
For that scenario - all of which inputs are tuneable - you can see that we'd typically be making about 50,000 people very upset, by miscategorising them as copyright thieves or perpetrators of abuse:
But let's vary the stats: @neilturkewitz is pushing a 2017 post by very respected fellow geek and expert @paulvixie in which Paul speaks encouragingly about a 1-to-2% error rate; let's split the difference, use 1.5% errors, ie: 98.5% accuracy: circleid.com/posts/20170420…

Our live coverage of the EUs Parliamentary vote on “Copyright in the Digital Single Market" directive—including #Article13 and #Article11—begins now. Follow us @efflive for commentary. This committee vote may be the last chance a democratic institution has to modify the bill.
What’s being voted on?

#Article11 of the proposed law would create a new quasi-copyright power that would let news organizations charge others for linking and quoting tiny snippets of their news stories—even when they describe well-known facts, like "Trump Travels to Korea."
#Article13 would require mandatory copyright filters on any site that lets users upload their content to the world. These filters would scan every contribution to the Web, and refuse to accept anything that its algorithms believe may be copyrighted material.

First, some EU lawmakers want to create a #LinkTax (#Article11)—a ham-fisted proposal that would punish those who use the Internet as an open platform for sharing. /2 publicknowledge.org/news-blog/blog…
Second, they also want to force sites to filter nearly all of their users' submissions against a database of copyrighted works. #Article13 would create a #CensorshipMachine so big it threatens to wreck the Internet itself. /3 motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/…
