The EU is starting a full on war on general purpose computing. A proposed law will make it impossible to install custom software on WiFi routers, smartphones and embedded devices!

This is insane. The hearing ends today. Please give your feedback: blog.mehl.mx/2019/protect-free

I have given my feedback as a non-EU citizen. Anyone can do it, now it's your turn!

Don't know what to say? Copy/paste from here:

Done! You bet I'll tell 'em that not only should custom firmware be allowed, but secretive corporate malware firmware should be abolished: ec.europa.eu/info/law/better-r

*Don't* copy/paste though: identical responses are discarded, and similar responses (same substance, different wording) count as a single contribution.

If this is really important to you, *do* take ten minutes to come up with your own reasons and coherent wording for it. The most value is when you introduce a new angle to the discussion.

The backend system counts individual “ideas”, not how many people clicked the submit button.
