Update on previous posts on the EU Copyright Directive and Link Tax.
Today, MEPs on the Legal Affairs Committee of the European Parliament were asked to decide: Should your freedom to participate on the web be restricted to serve corporate interests – or should alternative measures be adopted that safeguard fundamental rights?
Despite a massive outpouring of protest from voters during these last few days, the majority voted for both the link tax and upload filters:
It looks like our local MEP Clare Moody voted AGAINST THIS, however this does not mean the right is over, we need to keep the pressure up and end this piece of legislation.
“Released more than three years ago, on April 25, 2015, Debian GNU/Linux 8 “Jessie” is currently considered the “oldstable” Debian branch since the release of the Debian GNU/Linux 9 “Stretch” operating system series precisely a year ago, on June 17, 2017. As such, Debian GNU/Linux 8 “Jessie” has now reached end of life and will no longer receive regular security support beginning June 17, 2018.”

Next week the European Union’s JURI committee will decide the fate of the Internet in the EU. If the lobbyists for the big publishers have their way, every website will be forced to pay a tax for every link to news content on the web. Added to that, they want to force sites to install "censorship machines" to filter and block uploaded content.1 This will hamper or outright break every site and service based in the EU, which means that the impact will be seen by Internet users all over the world. That’s why the OpenMedia community, along with our partners and other organisations across Europe,2 are making one last urgent push to Save the Link and stop censorship machines. Just 9 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) will decide,3 so we’re tweeting them to tell them the choice is clear. Today, June 12, is the day of action across Europe to #SaveYourInternet. If these laws pass, it will be the end of smaller Internet operators in Europe. The automated content-filtering technology the lawmakers are demanding will be hideously expensive, and will not be nearly as accurate as they claim. The link tax is an unprecedented assault on the free and open web: it goes to the heart of what makes the Internet so powerful — the free sharing of information. Even if you’re not directly represented by one of these 9 MEPs, they are deciding on a law that will affect all of us, in Europe and around the world. SEND A MESSAGE TO THESE 9 MEPs NOW: https://savethelink.org/tweet-your-mep-saveyourinternet?src=162696 It doesn’t matter if you’re from a country represented by one of the 9 MEPs or not; we all need to stand together to put a stop to this dangerous and destructive proposal. Send a tweet to an MEP today and tell them to SaveYourInternet. After years of delays and debate, we’re at the critical point now. We can’t let up. Too much depends on this. Let’s take over the Internet today and make it a day the deciding MEPs can never forget. Yours for the open web, Dave, for the team at OpenMedia P.S A tweet will take just a minute or two of your time, but will reach the people making this crucial decision. Send a tweet today. If you don’t use Twitter, you can email the MEPs here too: https://savethelink.org/tweet-your-mep-saveyourinternet?src=162696 Footnotes 1.
