In case you're wondering: the #EU just voted to impose filters on all the text, audio, photos, videos, etc you might post. If you think this will help photographers or other creators, you don't understand filters.
First of all: pirates laugh at filters. The most sophisticated image filters in the world - those used for state censorship in China - are trivial to evade https://citizenlab.ca/2018/08/cant-picture-this-an-analysis-of-image-filtering-on-wechat-moments/ Anyone whose occupation is beating filters will beat filters.
This will come up for another vote in January. i'll be honest, this is likely to be a pro forma exercise. It's almost inconceivable that the whole #CopyrightDirective will be voted down. But so long as there's even a tiny chance we can save Europe from this lunacy, we'll fight.
Everything we do today involves the internet. Everything we do tomorrow will require it. Every problem everyone has involves the internet, and everyone's solution to that problem will eventually look like this: "Can't we just destroy the internet a little to solve my problem?"
