I want EU citizens to know what happened in their name. The @EU_Commission acted as the long arm of multinational entertainment companies to block progressive #copyright reform in South Africa that would have helped millions of users & authors. A thread.
@EU_Commission On 18 February 2019, entertainment industry trade groups IFPI (music), MPA (Hollywood), FEP (publishers) etc sent a letter to the EU Commission, asking them to intervene in the ongoing South African copyright reform on their behalf. asktheeu.org/en/request/791…
Their claim was that the reform would hurt creators, but actual creators were of a different view. Aside from introducing #fairuse, access to books for blind people and those who can't afford textbooks, the bill would also drastically improve the bargaining position of authors.

Once a record label like Sony Music or Naxos claims a performance that they have released, the bots scour the services for anything that sounds even remotely like that performance and either deletes it, mutes it, or steals the money it generates.

And on the platforms, users are considered guilty until proven innocent. An automated takedown is virtually instantaneous, while a human review that reverses it can take TWENTY EIGHT MONTHS.
