Today Members of the European Parliament adopted three terrible proposals in the new #CopyrightDirective and rejected every good one, setting the stage for mass, automated surveillance and arbitrary censorship of the Internet. (1/6) eff.org/deeplinks/2018…
#Article13: the Copyright Filters. All but the smallest platforms will have to defensively adopt copyright filters that examine everything you post, and censor anything judged to be a copyright infringement. (2/6) eff.org/deeplinks/2018…
#Article11: Linking to the news using more than one word from the article is prohibited unless you're using a service that bought a license from the news site you want to link to. (3/6) eff.org/deeplinks/2018…
Article 12a: No posting your own photos or videos of sports matches. You are the audience, your job is to sit where you're told, passively watch the game, and go home. (4/6)
As we've seen with #NetNeutrality in the USA, the movement to protect the free and open Internet has widespread popular support and can turn into a potential third rail for politicians. (5/6) nytimes.com/2018/05/16/tec…

Join us in the fight to protect the free and open Internet. (6/6) eff.org
