@jz @switchingsocial @fsfe

When @aral was saying "institutional corruption", I didn't take him seriously. Perhaps a part of me believed that these institutions cannot possibly be corrupted.

Now the proof is staring at us right in the face.

#InstitutionalCorruption

@mxmehl

I'm choosing neither.

@jz is right on this one. There's already enough free software being abused for purposes of oppression. Just look at what the big-data stuff coming out of apache is being used for at facebook and NSA, for example.

We don't need @fsfe to ask for more software to be built for such purposes. People who don't care about your ideals will already be more than happy to build it. Instead, encourage the community to build tools that clog and/or circumvent the filters!

@rigelk @jz @fsfe That's sad. Even a cursory analysis should tell then that Free Software is incompatible with this type of government censorship. Making Free Software which takes away the freedoms of millions of Europeans is not good ethics.

Wow.

"We call on the European Commission to promote the dissemination of Free Software filter technologies"

@fsfe , SRSLY???

Why not free/libre/open-source DRM, free/libre/open-source tracking, profiling and predictive algorithm, free/libre/open-source drone strikes, while we're at it? What a disgrace :(

who will open an instance (13tube.net? art13tube.org?), dedicated to receive all that will be censored from major centralized platforms?

In case anyone had any doubt left:

Copyright has fully turned into an offensive weapon in the hands of Industry(+Google&co) against us, the People.

Refuse that ! Refuse these centralised platforms! Refuse that

All of which while the stream of the plenary was down!

If @Europarl_EN@twitter.com wanted to cut itself from its constituency, both symbolically and politically, it wouldn't do otherwise! Bravo, fuckers!

@europarl actually didn't even vote for or against .

It decided (by 3 votes!) to NOT vote on it, thus adopting directive as a whole including .

A gesture of political cowardice, a voting artifice, a bloody farce!

Fuck that and its false promises of democracy!

: EU Parliament denied itself, by a *3 votes* majority, the right to vote for or against .

A parliament that votes against voting about the most controversial/crucial point!

Don't come and complain when people abstain to elections.

Well played, industry!

Fuck !

Fuck all corrupt institutions and politicians who got that crap adopted!

Fuck all "artists" who got manipulated into defending it!

!

Absolute boycott + decentralized/distributed Resistance!

26 March 2019. The day the sold the Internet.

Money now drives control of our behaviors and communications. Mass-censorship will give super-powers.

Congrats!

adopted. Solution remains valid after the vote: , decentralised+distributed technologies, civil disobedience.

Fuck that turned against the People!

Fuck that !

: Corruption of the EU policy-making process gives Google and other US giant unprecedented power over ppl's communication, imposing mass-censorship for economic purpose.

just lost it.

Don't complain after next election.

adopted. China, Russia, Iran,Turkey and other pro-censorship states may thank the EU, to impose automated, mass-censorship for economic purposed.

What could go wrong?

Fuck that !

adopted.

Now towards civil disobedience and decentralized/distributed services to counter a copyright regime weaponized against the People.

Fuck that !

Fuck that !

adopted.

In , money, corporate influence and censorship are valued more than freedom and the voice of the People. Fuck that shit!

DISOBEY COPYRIGHT 3/3

Some may wish to reform it, towards attempts to unconditionally legalise remixing, educational use and not-for-profit sharing between individuals. Others may actively refuse copyright altogether, demonstrating the collective culture of sharing, through decentralised/distributed services and protocols, as a basic and essential precondition to being, acting and fighting together all forms of oppression.

DIVERSITY OF TACTICS, COMMON STRATEGY:
DOWN WITH OPPRESSIVE COPYRIGHT!

DISOBEY COPYRIGHT 2/3

Weaponised against the People, copyright serves as pretext to control and extract all possible financial benefit from our communications, our cultural practices, our expression and our lives online and offline. Such a "copywrong" and its enforcement rely heavily on mass-surveillance.

BEYOND THE VOTE ON WE MUST RESIST COPYRIGHT — OPPOSE AND DISOBEY IT WHENEVER NECESSARY!

DISOBEY COPYRIGHT!
SHARING IS CARING!

For at least 20 years we have fought a copyright regime which has been used as a tool of oppression: EUCD, "three strikes", ACTA, , etc. Like a Terminator, it always comes back after we've defeated it, to control the means of distribution of cultural works, serving the interests of the entertainment industry.
