Interesting and opposite take to #EU #Copyright directive Article13 criticism of #EFF and #FSF in MusicTechPolicy blog:

"Europarliament explains Article 13 and Google's fake "Lobbying"

Mentions Orwell: "War is Piece, Freedom is Slavery, Copyright is Censorship"

Who is right, who is wrong??

@rapnie that "European Parliament" Q&A is written by Axl Voss, in his position as chair of the JURI committee. His claim to speak on behalf of all MEPS (and all JURI) is one reason why this has got so out of control. Julia Reda is on the same commitee, and has v. different ideas. The CULT committee also disagreed.
