EFF has the answer. #DigitalServicesAct https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/07/effs-eu-policy-principles-platform-liability-and-monitoring
@eff The traceability provision compels private messaging apps to weaken their security so they can track anyone who hasn't committed any wrongdoing in order to catch a few malicious actors. #PLFakeNews https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/06/5-serious-flaws-new-brazilian-fake-news-bill-will-undermine-human-rights [4/5]
