Hello Assembled People of European Mastodon! I work at @eff on international copyright. You might have heard of #article13, the EU proposal to require © filters on sharing sites.
We're really worried that this could affect services like ActivePub/Mastodon instances, opening them up to lawsuits or requiring expensive filters.
The key vote is on Wednesday -- please call or write your MEP and ask them to vote against #article13 to protect the future of the internet! https://saveyourinternet.eu/
@mala @eff Not everybody here in the European #fediverse uses mastodon.
