Looks like we have some alarming news from Savetheinternet.info:
https://twitter.com/uploadfilter/status/1323968265958395904?s=21

“Remix, meme, GIF, mashup, fan art, fan fiction, cover or sampling are rated by Altmaier (CDU / BMWi) as too extensive.
Our Minister of State for Culture (CDU) supports the matter and calls for the paragraph to be deleted without replacement.”

Basically Germany wants to scrap all exceptions to Copyright.

Here’s a link to the article included in the tweet:
https://www.heise.de/news/Urheberrechtsreform-Altmaier-macht-gegen-Nutzung-von-Inhalte-Schnipseln-mobil-4946759.html

You’ll need a translation program which shouldn‘t be too tough to track down.

Hiho! Nope, I just have other things I need to take care of right now. But this weekend I will certainly have time to share my thoughts on this. :-)

Neat. May not live there but one places passing stuff like this will influence others and Derpi is hosted pretty close to the action. It's a shame to see such cultural production be shutdown. Violating copyright law or not, it is the way of the net and I don't see a world where one can speak freely if stuff like this succeeds.

This should be met with pitchforks

You won’t hear any complaints from me about that.

In fact, this attitude of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Ministry of Culture is actually unthinkable, but it proves once again how much the CDU is in the hands of lobbyists. I’ve been trying to figure out who’s trying to influence this. Mainly, I was able to locate the two German associations of the music industry and the newspaper publishers (or rather their digital representatives).

So, as always, it’s all about money. Even though I cannot blame these two associations for wanting to defend the rights and interests of their members, I see here the struggle of two sectors threatened with extinction, which are desperately trying to legitimize their own existence. And since both industries are employers with a relatively large number of jobs, the CDU seems to be entering into a faustian bargain here.

One cannot really reproach Peter Altmaier for being particularly unworldly. On the contrary, the man is actually quite communicative and has an affinity for the net. So the whole thing does surprise me a little. I can only suspect here the last stand of lobbyists to no longer want to face reality.

Interesting. They are calling in relation too the christchurch call A agreement:between tech companies and a few countries from my understanding to take action after Christchurch. I remember some online groups being concerned over it being lead by New Zealand and being overly hostile to free speech but I lost track of a lot of this due to IRL stuff so I'm a little rusty on what's being going on in the digital sphere at the moment. I see the EFF here and I can see some of their and other net organizations influence in this.

The advisory network seems to be putting a particular emphasis on both trying to achieve the goal of removing extremist content while having some language on maintaining the openness of the internet and perhaps having something more clear cut than just offloading it to the tech companies themselves.
Conduct an Internet impact analysis before deploying technical tools that risk creating unintended consequences to the fundamental design of the Internet, including its ability to interoperate with other networks in an open, secure, and trustworthy manner.

I like them reminding everyone of that. Though I'm honestly so cynical of Governments and NGOs I could still see something bad getting cooked up.

Note: 4 AM about to sleep so this isn't the most careful examination I very well could have missed something obvious.

France and Spain "argued that any conflict between the fundamental rights of rightholders and users must always be resolved in favour of rightholders."

That’s fucking right, France and Spain literally said that “some are more equal than others” in relation to the issue of Article 13/17.

WHAT THE SERIOUS FUCK?

Anyway, we have a report on the CJEU hearing of Poland’s case:

Part of me wants to roll my eyes at petitions like this but I honestly get that in certain cases they can be effective at least at showing dissent if they gain traction.

@CaptainXtra
I am curious how the chips will fall in this. Even the strictest attempts at censorship will quickly run into the decentralized nature of the internet. This will require a China style attempt to truly stamp out. Further complicated by different nations possibly enforcing it half way or resisting it will probably result in just a lot shades of gray in the law and big game of Whack A Mole with some things being nuked from the net and others being completely untouched.

The real thing that is needed is mass civil resistance and decentralization. If the measures do become fierce an opportunity does present itself. Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc, won't be just arbitrarily restrictive but may not be able to operate at all. That is something that will be noticed by the average person. Additionally, as they become stricter or disable certain functions in attempting to comply also could chase away people to smaller platforms if exploited right.

A tweet from Communia relating to French Implementation:

“🥐☕️🇫🇷 #copyright implementation update: The French delegation law authorising the government to implement the remaining parts of the DSM directive has been published: https://www.legifrance.gouv.fr/jorf/id/JORFTEXT000042607095

The @MinistereCC now has until 3 June 2021 to issue a decree implementing #article17”

You’ll need to translate the article the link leads you to but there’s many programs to easily get that done with.

Every battle counts. Unless it's a small country, most companies serving EU wide (the whole point of a single market) will probably go by the strictest legal standard.

Oh boy, this isn’t good news:

Translation:

The lobby campaign by Springer, Oettinger & co. has worked! The #GroKo postpones the decision on copyright reform because #Artikel17 the #niemehrCDU is not radical enough yet. The CDU ignores its own decision against #Uploadfilter :


/end

I don’t know how they did it but it happened.

Removing user rights goes against the Commission guidelines so WTF?

I swear to god they’re asking for lawsuits.

So, panic time?


In other news I saw some chatter related to this proposal out from Ireland In particular, these two provisions:
An obligation for video on-demand services to meet a quota of 30% European Works and ensure the prominence of such content in their catalogues;

An obligation for professional video on-demand services which provide news and current affairs content to meet the same journalistic standards as required by television broadcasters;

For the obvious effect it would have on streaming services such as Netflix and possibly YT depending on how they enforce it on it with their payment plans. This is just a proposal and I am not in the know enough to judge how big of a threat it could be. Note too, a lot of this is specific to Ireland.

One way or another, the EU will rebel against the current state of affairs on the net. And that may not even be such a bad thing, looking at the last few years. Neither the American nor the Russian/Chinese way seems particularly sensible to me at the moment. Sorry. ;-)

The TERREG has been voted on today:

The following text comes from a Tweet by LIBE Committee Press:

”.EP_Justice confirms 54/13/1 the outcome of negotiations with EUCouncil on #terreg addressing terrorist content online, rap. @PatrykJaki:

➡️1h to remove terrorist content with safeguards
➡️educational/journalistic/research exceptions
➡️no general obligation to filter content”

https://twitter.com/ep_justice/status/1348705601577250816?s=21

User echo_pbreyer points out the following in a response tweet:

“Despite the achievements listed, #TERREG's ultra-fast removal orders without prior judicial/independent review come with a high risk of abuse and have striking similarities to the unconstitutional French Avia law, likely violating fundamental rights.”
