Hello Assembled People of European Mastodon! I work at @eff on international copyright. You might have heard of , 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 to protect the future of the internet! saveyourinternet.eu/

@mala @eff I did, received one (automated) reply from Julia Reda (the only one actually caring about it stuff)...

We are doomed.

@mala @eff Didn't we just defeat a measure similar to this? Why is this an issue again so soon?

@mala @eff I don't have a "my MEP" (it doesn't work like that in NL) but I've emailed the person I voted for, anyway.

@mala @eff Not everybody here in the European #fediverse uses mastodon. :fediverse:

@mala @eff You could make it easy for people in the UK to do so by pointing them at writetothem.com/ - write to your MEP (or MP, local councilors etc) in just a few clicks.
