Today the European Commission will publish a proposal for a new law which will make the interception, analysis and monitoring of *ALL* digital communications (messengers, forums, direct messages etc.) mandatory.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam
Let me be clear - this is ILLEGAL under EU Treaties and Case Law under the principles of proportionality and necessity. This new law will turn the EU into a surveillance state.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam #childsexualabuse
500 million citizens will be subjected to complete blanket surveillance - the impact on privacy will be profound. Everything we have fought for since 1949 - our values, our principles, our democracy and our human rights, will be undone with the scratch of a pen.

About usefulness or not usefulness of Reading Books of Famous Lawyers:

As a young lawyer, I too read such books. They inspired and I hoped that reading them would improve my English expressions and use of idioms and phrases.

But after many years now, I have different views.
2/ I have found that such books have not helped me in my journey.

Some of these books were just showcases of their intelligence.

In some books they just tried to transfer their unfulfilled arguments, dreams, Just as our parents wanted us to pursue their dreams..
3/ None of the books which I read was specially written to empower Lawstudents or young lawyers. This was their last consideration.

Successful lawyers of these books had different circumstances, different education,
Their parents were different. Their cities were different.

Who else attended today's @OECD Development Co-operation Report 2021 launch event on shaping a just #DigitalTransformation?✋

Panelists expanded upon some of the report's key themes, including:

📅 Acting now!
⬆️ More #coordination
🖼️ Strong #frameworks
🧑‍🤝‍🧑 #InclusiveDevelopment
But we also heard a lot about #DigitalPublicGoods (#DPGs). Like... A LOT a lot.

So, what's the connection between #DPGs and a just, #inclusive #DigitalTransformation? Why have so many #donors, national #governments, and #tech experts alike expressed interest in #DPG solutions?
Well, they all agree that #DigitalTransformation is at a tipping point globally, with the divisions between wealthy and developing nations especially stark: 96% of the world's unconnected people live in developing countries.

1. Introduction

I have been in mortal combat with the loved Bank of Queensland @BOQ for nine years

This is a 11 slide thread that will categorically demonstrate how BOQ & other banks use their disproportionate #Legal power & their Gatekeeper @AFCA_org_au to avoid #justice
2. Background

Borrower never missed a payment & was ready willing & able to continue to pay, @BOQ still took the farm, destroying a lifetime of work

Aware the #justice system is unaffordable & out of reach BOQ discontinued legal action & wrote off the debt leaving us destitute
3. We could not afford legal action, I filed a complaint with AFCA

It took @AFCA_org_au almost 2 yrs to find @BOQ did no wrong which this thread will debunk

There is no merits review or appeal

For #justice one must rely on the legal system that is unaffordable & out of reach

Should #NATO consider placing a #NoFlyZone over #Ukraine️ ? I flew in support of a NoFlyZone in Iraq prior to the Second Gulf War and have some thoughts from a #Legal/JAG + operational perspective that I unpack for @just_security here. 🧵…
2/ A #NoFlyZoneOverUkraine zone does not equate to a "no-combat zone." Quite the opposite. It does not magically occur by mere declaration. It requires a massive military presence and military enforcement, a point made 10 years ago by @Schmitt_ILaw and others.
3/I sympathize with the no-fly zone’s animating idea—to protect human lives—but a #NATO no-fly zone simply presents an unacceptable, escalatory risk to the United States and its allies. Why?

Just a friendly reminder @moderna_tx told the @SECGov that the @US_FDA defines #mRNA as gene therapy. And called it an unprecedented new category of #medicines tho they really want that #vaccine classification anyways for liability protections & fear the public wouldn’t take it.
They know the #COVID19 #vaccine isn’t a vaccine but human #gene #therapy.

It’s also illegal for anyone to use your account and put your money on the line; and by ensuring your information is protected with roadblocks that stop anyone else from accessing… your information and account, you ensure that can of worms is never opened.

The US #press runs a lot of articles discussing the legalities of online gambling and discussions whether online gambling is #legal or not. These discussions will go on for a long time yet but recently a ban on online gambling was put in place for US based players.… Whether or not this helps is hard to say. It certainly helps some but often drives illegal activity into other areas.

The UK on the other hand actively allows legal gambling and actively promotes it… as do many other countries. However the UK is rather unique in that it’s taken the bull by the horns and makes a lot of effort in ensuring that the casinos advertising and allowing play by UK players are regulated and properly licensed.

In several months past,there have been numerous reports of fraudulent transactions on clients' accounts via E-channels.

Here are a few of the reasons why banks are "hesitant to assist."

#Bank #Nigeria
1. INDEMNITY: When you want an E-banking Solution (ATM, Mobile/Internet Banking, etc.), you must fill out and sign an Indemnity Form. Simply put, you are accepting culpability for fraudulent transactions that occur on your account through such e-channels and absolving the bank,
of any legal repercussions.

Now, if the bank discovers that the fraud was due to your negligence, "OYO" is your name.

2. RESOURCE CONSTRAINTS: Even if the bank decides to assist with the investigation, manpower and time are not luxury "things" that can be spared.

Those of us with immigrant backgrounds have NO idea what debt we owe these women for risking their lives so some of us can shop at Whole Foods with other suburban moms, then drive a Lexus home to ride on a Peloton, & think only our own hard work created this access to success.
Those of us who are Muslim have a partial experience of what it is like to be made the face of threat and danger and vilified.

…But “the West “still wants to “save” Muslim women… make us a token or mascot of saviorism & evidence of being a shining city on the hill.
In comparison, the black woman doesn’t have that opportunity to be paraded around as the most recent woman “saved” & celebrated - the tropes are universally harmful & exploitative/pejorative vs Black women in society/media + centuries of economic barriers/being exploited.

What is a #DAO and what are the predictions that will impact lawyers (aka opportunities and growth!) - a thread. #legal #lawyers #law #crypto #blockchain #legaltech Complete research briefing at
DAO - decentralized autonomous organization. This is a new type of company type (e.g. LLC), in which there is no leading member of the organization that has a majority rule and no human-based active decision making.
DAOs - operate through a series of smart contracts with extremely limited human interaction. This means the business can run without a traditional business structure.

Two weeks ago, with guidance from @HempFedIreland, we sent a lengthy email to TD's and councillors from every major party. It detailed in polite but not uncertain terms the current state of total disarray faced by our industry.

Just hours ago, we received the first response.
And we're kind of shocked but most grateful to reveal it came from the office of @MaryLouMcDonald @sinnfeinireland ✊🌿🇮🇪

NOW I WAS going to write in big screaming letters:

Sinn Fèin Supports Cannabis Reform in Ireland!!

But I would not want to put words in anyone's mouth...
So instead! I'll quote the crux of it below. From the office of Mary Lou McDonald folks. Thank you to David Cullinane and Pa Daly for their help in this!

⚖️📚Some #legal thoughts on #NFTs 👇

1️⃣ Generally NFTs will NOT constitute securities (in US or UK)

🇺🇸Not ‘investment contracts’ (under #Howey test)

🇬🇧Not security tokens or e-money tokens, and so are ‘unregulated tokens’

(1 of 6) @OVioHQ @jamie247
2️⃣🚨#NFTs CAN be securities in certain circumstances

For example:
* fractionalised NFTs embodying rights to royalties; or
* NFTs sold with promise of future liquidity & continued services from issuer

Just calling something an NFT doesn’t change its underlying nature

(2 of 6)
3️⃣🤯Interaction between IP laws and #NFTs is COMPLICATED

By default ownership of #NFT = ownership of the token itself, NOT of the underlying work (or copyright/other IP rights in it)

That ownership remains with the original creator of the work

1] Someone shared with me a #legal opinion which sought to separate "#facts from #fiction" with regards to the resolutions previously made by @OurMDCT during it's so called virtual #NationalCouncil

Carefully went through it, whilst referencing to the MDC-T #constitution itself..
2] On the attached press release, @witness_dube authoritatively claims that the "the National Council sitting as an extension of Congress moved to amend the MDC constitution..."

Apparently, the alleged amendment is the basis on which the appointment of Elias Mudzuri was ratified Image
3] Going through the MDC-T constitution itself, it would seem like the distinction between what a Congress and the National Council can do is clear.

Only a legally constituted Congress can amend the constitution of the MDC-T party according to clause 6.2.3 (e). ImageImage
