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…
We suffered a crushing setback today, but it doesn't change the mission. If this vote had gone the other way, we'd still be fighting today. And tomorrow. And the day after.

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