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!
"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 :(
Replying to @jerezim
Robocopyright for real now:
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 #ARTICLE13 WE MUST RESIST COPYRIGHT — OPPOSE AND DISOBEY IT WHENEVER NECESSARY!
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, #Article13, 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.
