Giving creators more copyright powers to combat exploitation by monopolistic corporations is like giving your kid more cash to compensate for having his lunch money stolen by schoolyard bullies. They'll take that too.
Give creators 100 years of copyright, and corporations will require that it be assigned to them for the full duration as a condition of publication.
Give them the right to license - and thus, prohibit - excerpting, and corporations will take that right as a condition of access to the market.

Today Members of the European Parliament adopted three terrible proposals in the new #CopyrightDirective and rejected every good one, setting the stage for mass, automated surveillance and arbitrary censorship of the Internet. (1/6)…
#Article13: the Copyright Filters. All but the smallest platforms will have to defensively adopt copyright filters that examine everything you post, and censor anything judged to be a copyright infringement. (2/6)…
#Article11: Linking to the news using more than one word from the article is prohibited unless you're using a service that bought a license from the news site you want to link to. (3/6)…

[Thread] C'est frappant comme on a –toutes proportions gardées– le même type de pb avec le numérique qu'avec le changement climatique. Sous le nez, un modèle totalement toxique. Dont on voit les effets délétères tous les jours mais dont on n'arrive pas à sortir.
Alors on patche, on rustine. Dans certains cas ça ouvre des perspectives (#RGPD). Dans d'autres c'est contre-productif parce qu'in fine on ne fera que renforcer la situation monopolistique d'acteurs qui fonctionnent à la prédation des données (#CopyrightDirective).
Mais ce qui me frappe aussi, c'est la stérilisation des imaginaires dans le «grand public». Qui envisage qu'on puisse demain avoir autre chose que Facebook, Twitter et YouTube? Pas grand-monde hélas (et ça me déprime).

first: yesterday the European Ct of Justice held hearings on #France’s push to globalize the right to be forgotten…

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… Anyone whose occupation is beating filters will beat filters.
But people who are legit? Including photogs? They're FUCKED. Filters can be intentionally bypassed if you know the trick, but if you're (say) a news photog whose photo of a protest includes a bus-ad with some stock imagery, the filters will not be able to know that you're legit.

Red alert: On Wednesday, the EU votes on #Article13—a disastrous proposal that would require websites to filter and censor uploaded content.

These #CensorshipMachines would break the Internet as we know it, and we have to stop them. <Thread>…
We aren’t alone in the fight. Artists, websites, technologists, and more are up in arms about this looming Internet catastrophe.

@WordPress, @Kickstarter, @Patreon, @Shapeways, @Bandcamp, all say no to #article13…

fonti:… e… (intersezione di insiemi offered by yours truly)
sarebbe utile spiegare loro perché hanno fatto una stupidata, sperando che non la ripetano a Settembre
