Today a 21-pages document was sent to at least 22 members of the European parliament. The authors claim to „have clear evidence of US meddling in this EU law making process“ and that a full release will happen in the next days.

They are wrong and here is why. /1

A huge scandal is brewing in the European Parliament on the #CensorshipMachines. Last week, rapporteur @AxelVossMdEP had shown signs to drop the harmful filtering obligation. Now it’s back, and it’s worse than ever. Read it here: juliareda.eu/wp-content/upl… #FixCopyright
This new draft was sent at the last minute before tomorrow’s negotiation, ignoring all progress that had already been made on the previous text. Now ALL platforms with very few exceptions are liable for users’ copyright infringements. #CensorshipMachines #FixCopyright
Where the previous draft would have opened the possibility for platforms to cooperate with rightsholders in other ways than #CensorshipMachines, this version says they HAVE to use “technical measures”, in other words filters. #FixCopyright
