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:… #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
To add insult to injury, the author listed in the metadata of the draft isn’t @AxelVossMdEP or his assistant, it’s an official of the @EU_Commission! The same official, btw, who wrote the Council draft on #CensorshipMachines for the Estonian presidency! A veritable tri-monologue!
The next shadow meeting will be tomorrow at 9 am. Then we’ll see if your representatives will simply accept their hard work being ignored like that, and whether @AxelVossMdEP will return to the negotiating table. #CensorshipMachines #FixCopyright
Update on today’s shadow meeting: @AxelVossMdEP says the inclusion of “technical measures” was a mistake, but insists that all platforms in the very broad definition communicate to the public and are liable for all their users’ copyright infringements. #CensorshipMachines
