Bad news for the European branches of the decentralized web. Not only did #copyrightfilters and the #linktax pass EU Parliament, the Commission introduced new anti-terrorist proposals that would need you to be available 24/7 to police your network for "terrorist content".
It's time to make your voice heard in Brussels. Start with subscribing and following https://edri.org/ -- the reps for digital rights groups in the EU.
Oh dear god...
@mala could you possibly link me to the legislation/reporting on this?
@Aleums @kew https://ec.europa.eu/commission/sites/beta-political/files/soteu2018-preventing-terrorist-content-online-regulation-640_en.pdf is the anti-terrorist content proposals
@mala "need you to be available 24/7 to police your network for "terrorist content"
what that really means?
@mala Are there any historical parallels for how this particular action might play out? Do any of them end well for the web? Are there feasible alternatives to "the web" that are now more viable?
