For the sake of clarity, here is an effort to dispel some of the myths about the #article13 #copyright #Uploadfilter
Myth 1.
There is no upload filter:
Reality: There is a specific obligation to prevent future uploads of content that has been reported to the platform. This an only be done with an #uploadfilter
Myth 2:
Small platforms are excluded.
Reality: Only small platforms that are less than three years old are (partially) exempted.

Bertelsmann, the largest media company in Europe, now openly opposes #Article13 and calls for rejection of the #copyright directive: spiegel.de/netzwelt/netzp…
Here’s what worries me: A sensible reaction to the increasing resistance to #Article13 from the entertainment sector would be to scrap it, at least for now, and take the time to seriously reconsider what this legislation is supposed to achieve and how it can strike a balance.
But of course, the resistance from media companies to #Article13 is not because they recognize the immense collateral damage it will have on fundamental rights and innovation.

BREAKING: Council has failed to find an agreement on its #copyright position today. This doesn’t mean that #Article11 and #Article13 are dead, but their adoption has just become a lot less likely. Let’s keep up the pressure now! #SaveYourInternet
The trilogue negotiation planned for Monday has apparently been cancelled by the Council. There may still be a trilogue before the election, if Council can agree on a text later. I'll blog as I get more news. #SaveYourInternet #Article13
Copyright negotiations hit a brick wall in Council: Read which countries voted against on my blog! juliareda.eu/2019/01/copyri… This is not the end of #Article11 and #Article13, but it shows that we can still turn things around! #SaveYourInternet

In an hour starts what is supposed to be the last trilogue negotiation on #copyright. @AxelVossMdEP told us he’s prepared to make a deal based on completely new text that hasn’t been discussed. None of the shadows agreed with this, it’s irresponsible lawmaking! #SaveYourInternet
Yesterday, negotiators from across the political spectrum expressed their dissatisfaction with @AxelVossMdEP negotiation stile. @POLITICOEurope has more: politico.eu/pro/politico-p… #SaveYourInternet
Discussions among governments in Council didn’t go smoothly either yesterday, apparently. Whether there can actually be a deal in the trilogue negotiation today is still wide open. Expect updates during the break around lunchtime and later tonight. #SaveYourInternet

Ich mache mal den ersten Schritt zu so einer Liste der verbrannten Videos.
Das neueste Video von @henrykstoeckl, in dem ein Streitgespräch zwischen A. Gauland und K. Göring-Eckardt analysiert wurde)ist von YT (virtuell) verbrannt worden: .
Als Grund wird..
.. angegeben, das #ZDF hätte eine Verletzung des Urheberrechts geltend gemacht. Sehr geehrtes @ZDF, wie vereinbaren Sie ein so kleinliches Verhalten mit ihrem #Bildungsauftrag als #LandesAöR ("Anstalt öffentlichen Rechts")? Sie sollten Kindern und Bürgern #Medienanalyse..
..nicht erschweren. Andernfalls verfestigt sich der Eindruck, dass es Ihnen mehr um Steuerung und Gedankenkontrolle als um Information und Bildung geht, und Ihr Ruf leidet noch mehr als er es in den letzten Jahren ohnehin schon tat. Schlimmstenfalls entstehen sogar..

Since people have been asking I thought I'd recap my #dystopia talk at @theuxcrunch from Thursday. The examples used are not what if scenarios. These all happened. #triggerwarning's apply. If you can make it thru to the end I have suggestions for how we can claw back some hope.
This is a quote you’ve all probably seen a million times. #Advertising & #techie shitheads love quoting it before they do trends porn. What they never seem to understand is how politically subversive the last bit is. B/c those wankers abuse it I swore I’d never use it.
Still, paraphrasing it is useful for my point. One person’s future is another person’s dystopia and thanks to the fundamental power of the Internet as a tool for distribution we can spread dystopia far and wide. Often before we know it, realise it, or even imagine it.

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

//Mega #Thread #SaveYourInternet - PART 1/3\\
Comme promis séance de debunking du doc que Youtube (YT) diffuse pour tourner les youtubeurs contre la Directive #Copyright (et leur faire faire son lobbying).
Attachez vos ceintures, prenez une aspirine & appelez les copains, on y go
Myth 1: YT paye des licences, notamment pour montrer qu’ils sont gentils et qu’il n’y a pas besoin de les réguler, mais uniquement quand ils en ont envie, au lance-pierre et en imposant leurs conditions. Donc oui, YT peut atteindre les 5 milliards de $ (en 12 ans)...
...mais ils oublient de dire que si on compare à Spotify (qui a l’obligation de passer des licences avec tous ses artistes) qui a 7 fois moins d’utilisateurs que YT, bah Spotify paye 20 fois plus les artistes par utilisateur, soit 11,5 milliards de $ (en 10 ans)... #Oups

Spending the morning with our dear colleagues @translatores to learn about “Linguistic linked #opendata for #terminology” - with Elena Montiel-Ponsoda (Polit. Madrid, a trained #1nt, btw) & @jor_gracia (Uni Zaragoza) #xl8 /cc @Goldsmith_Josh @WordLo @RodolfoMaslias @Jeromobot First slide of the presentation with title and authors
This should be a great preparation for #18TEF in a few weeks which is also all about language/translation data.
We’re starting with the limitations of “traditional data”: lots of stuff out there, connected by hyperlinks, but still accessed 1-by-1, unstructured, difficult to interpret, hard to integrate different formats. Oh my!

Every year, my students find it mind-blowing that, for its first 44 years, #SCOTUS usually delivered opinions only from the bench, leaving the substance to be fleshed out through private transcription by reporters (who neglected to actually transcribe all of the Court's rulings):
It wasn't until:

1816 that Congress even began appropriating funds to pay someone to report on the Court's decisions;

1874 that Congress began paying to (privately) publish the Court's decisions, and

1922 that the government began publishing the Court's decisions itself.
And then, of course, there is the #copyright dispute between the third and fourth of the Court's reporters, culminating in the 1834 decision in Wheaton v. Peters, which, not coincidentally, was handed down five days after the rule change flagged above:
