As Europe's latest copyright proposal heads to a critical vote on June 20-21, more than 70 Internet and computing luminaries have spoken out against a dangerous provision, Article 13, that would require Internet platforms to automatically filter uploaded content. The group, which includes Internet pioneer Vint Cerf, the inventor of the World Wide Web Tim Berners-Lee, Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales, co-founder of the Mozilla Project Mitchell Baker, Internet Archive founder Brewster Kahle, cryptography expert Bruce Schneier, and net neutrality expert Tim Wu, wrote in a joint letter that was released today:

By requiring Internet platforms to perform automatic filtering all of the content that their users upload, Article 13 takes an unprecedented step towards the transformation of the Internet, from an open platform for sharing and innovation, into a tool for the automated surveillance and control of its users.

    many great points here, really, very enjoyable, but come on, jmorris, trump is winning and what the fuck else? donnie is an old turd wrapped in a platinum foil encrusted with shit-diamonds. not excusing democrats from ANY of it, but the ungodly shit that republicans rained on anyone south of snow-white is wow. specifically, they created forced labor camps known as "prisons", some of them for-profit, that are currently putting gulags to shame and giving iosif stalin a hard-on in his grave! dark-skinned minorities are disproportionally represented as nonviolent, purely political criminals convicted of horrible offenses like the intent to consume a mild doping agent. but wait, jmorris, don't let the overtly racist legislation sway this conversation, this is not the point i am making. the point i am making is that donnie's little fascists have zero respect for individual liberty. they are ah-so-fine with throwing people into forced labor prison system for life, just for the acts of harmless self-expression. that they only expect this to be applied to brown people is just the icing on the shit-cake. ~ pseudonymous 0x9932FE2729B1D963
