«Forget The GDPR, The EU's New Copyright Proposal Will Be A Complete And Utter Disaster For The Internet»
Julia Reda has an update: «Update from May 25th 2018, 13:37: Member State governments have today adopted their position on the copyright reform, with no significant changes to the upload filters and link tax provisions. It is now up to Parliament to stop them.»

Whenever I read about political decision making in parliaments where there are more than just two parties I want to know what parties acted against my best interest and who fought for it.

@kensanata I blogged on this a couple of weeks ago. I also wrote to all seven of Scotland's MEPs; so far only one has replied.

Organize and act now, before it‘s too late!
