I could argue that the EU Copyright Directive and it's infamous has the potential to become the "great Chinese firewall" light edition. I'm convinced that the distributed internet offers a much better protection against this than the centralized internet that most people are so fond of these days.

@ericbuijs is that still a thing? I thought they voted against it. 🤔

@brejoc Unfortunately the directive was accepted by the EU parliament on 12 September. The article of Cory Doctorow explains how disastrous this is.

@ericbuijs Oh damn it. I thought we where over this with the vote from 5th of July. Well, I guess there is always a new opportunity to create a total mess! 😭
