The Magic 10: #SaveYourInternet
Heroes or Zeroes?

On 20 June, the European Parliament will vote on the Copyright Directive. The votes of 10 Members of the parliament will determine if the Internet remains open and free from censorship in the EU. Tell them you need them to protect your Internet against surveillance and censorship machines, as the defenders of EU citizens! Give them the power to be Heroes!

Forget The GDPR, The EU's New Copyright Proposal Will Be A Complete And Utter Disaster For The Internet
from the wake-up-folks dept

Today is GDPR day, and lots of people are waking up to a world in which EU regulations are having a widespread (and not always positive) impact on how the internet works. As we've detailed over the past couple of years, while there are many good ideas in the GDPR, there are also many ridiculously bad ones, combined with poorly thought out drafting, and we're already seeing some of the fallout from that. But, believe it or not, there's an even larger threat from the EU looming, and it's received precious little attention: the EU's new copyright reform proposal is set to be voted on next month and it will truly be disastrous to the internet. As it currently stands, it will require widespread censorship in the form of mandatory filtering and also link taxes that have already been shown to be harmful to news.

 European Parliament member Julia Reda is sounding the alarm and asking people to speak out. As she notes, many of the folks now freaking out about the GDPR wish they got involved over two years ago when it was being debated. And if you're concerned about how problematic this new copyright reform will be for the internet, now is the time to speak out (yes, even if you're not in the EU):

    On the topic of copyright, you NOW have the chance to have an influence ? a chance that will be long lost in two years, when we?ll all be ?suddenly? faced with the challenge of having to implement upload filters and the ?link tax? ? or running into new limits on what we can do using the web services we rely on.

    In stark contrast to the GDPR, experts near-unanimously agree that the copyright reform law, as it stands now, is really bad. Where in the case of the GDPR the EU institutions pushed through many changes against the concerted lobbying efforts of big business interests, in the copyright reform they are about to give them exactly what they want.

    Parliament and Council have had over a year and a half to fix the glaring flaws of the Commission proposal ? but despite their growing complexity, the latest drafts of both institutions fail to meet basic standards of workability and proportionality

Who does the GDPR apply to?

In order to answer this question, you have to ask yourself five questions. If you answer yes to any of the following questions, you have to comply with the GDPR.

    Are we established in the Union?
    Do we offer goods or services to people in the EU?
    Do we monitor the behaviour of people in the EU?
    Are we a processor for a controller who must comply?
    Do we have a processor in the EU?

If you answered yes and you fall within the GDPR?s catchment area, you can find out how we can help you to comply. The risks are significant and there is no time to lose ? the deadline is 25 May 2018.

Judge Rules Twitter Can Be Sued For Falsely Advertising They Allow Free Speech

Authored by Mac Slavo via,

A California judge has ruled that social media giant Twitter can be sued for falsely advertising free speech. As Bloomberg reports, the judge said that Twitter?s policy of banning users ?at any time, for any reason or for no reason? may constitute an ?unconscionable contract? for a company which advertises free speech.

?Our lawsuit is not about whether Taylor is right or wrong,? Peters said in February. ?It?s about whether Twitter and other technology companies have the right to ban individuals from using their services based on their perceived viewpoints and affiliations.?
