We're really worried that this could affect services like ActivePub/Mastodon instances, opening them up to lawsuits or requiring expensive filters.

The proposed package of laws (incl. Article 13) was defeated.
However because the package was defeated, the parliament now gets to vote on the individual parts of the package (incl. Article 13).
(It's like someone in a restaurant who rejects the set meal deal, so now they want to choose the individual courses instead.)
@mala @eff hey hey. Please don't forget about Article 11, which will have a chilling effect on (amongst other things) journalism: https://www.occrp.org/en/announcements/8003-occrp-s-position-on-the-proposed-directive-on-copyright-in-the-digital-single-market
@mala @eff Thanks for good intention, Danny O’B @mala but it will not work. Purpose is to have censorship, so the very platforms that were created to give people freedom of speech now are used to limit it. Sad reality of post-soviet&post-nazi & pre-global era. Welcome to new world-order where silence is the best behavior in eyes of authorities & the best way of survival.
