Hello Assembled People of European Mastodon! I work at @eff on international copyright. You might have heard of #article13, the EU proposal to require © filters on sharing sites.
We're really worried that this could affect services like ActivePub/Mastodon instances, opening them up to lawsuits or requiring expensive filters.
The key vote is on Wednesday -- please call or write your MEP and ask them to vote against #article13 to protect the future of the internet! https://saveyourinternet.eu/
@mala @eff I did, received one (automated) reply from Julia Reda (the only one actually caring about it stuff)...
We are doomed.
This is the Mastodon instance for comm.network.
We have no specific topics but a focus on information technology and programming.
