Europe Just Voted to Wreck the Internet

Cory Doctorow

Lobbyists for "creators" threw their lot in with the giant entertainment companies and the newspaper proprietors and managed to pass the new EU Copyright Directive by a hair's-breadth this morning, in an act of colossal malpractice to harm to working artists will only be exceeded by the harm to everyone who uses the internet for everything else.

Here's what the EU voted in favour of this morning

#4

The rich and powerful are scared to death of free speech.


#5

Would this were just ignorance. This is a vote for oppression, straight up, a choice to sacrifice a good part of their commerce and marketable skills to hold down understanding.


#6

People are starting to no longer believe the lies, despite the massive social programming. They do not want the people to start thinking. The natural step for the fascists, is to control all forms of mass communication. You can see their attacks on open free speech everyday all around you. Soon you will only see what they want you to see. It is a world I universally reject…along with the society that allowed it to happen.
