The struggle for copyright reform, so the article claims a lot of nonsense, you would have liked a Filter. In the dispute over the Reform have now won the lobbies and non-citizens.comment by Jannis Brühl Jannis Brühl

follow The Upload Filter. A majority of EU members has put the interests of organized right-holders of music, Text, and image on the open Internet. The network in which citizens are free to files to further spread, will get new barriers.
The reformers in Brussels have ignored that the Internet each and every from the mere "users" to potential copyright made: Anyone can produce content and publish, you have an infinite number of times to copy. Smartphones allow publications from anywhere, you make any of the photographers, writers and DJ; the author of the New creation, but also works of other remixes or parody. (Remember: you Are in violation of rights, must be removed the works now for a note from the legal owner of Youtube & co., the process is often tough).
Instead of copyright law to the Internet, such as with lump-sum licenses, according to which not every Upload needs to be tested, to the Internet now to the - not-functioning - copyright customize.
The deputies and the Commission have not made the rules for this new type of the author, but for the long-established associations tailor-made for the lobby organisations of the music labels, movie studios, and publishers. It is important that you get out of the the corporations of Silicon Valley more money for the works that are uploaded on their platforms. Not all professional Creative support of the Reform. Anyway, it is unclear how much of the money that is now flowing at the end in fact, in the case of musicians, authors, and artists to arrive. The Directive does not regulate. For small businesses the expensive Filter technique means a strain, the exception to this rule for Start-ups will help you to the maximum in their first three years.
Confusing false statements
The advocates of Reform to throw all the citizens who oppose the Plan, with the Silicon Valley in a pot. Even worse: they accuse you to make themselves the instruments of the IT industry. These citizens have gone to the hundreds of thousands against the Reform on the road or have signed petitions. The target covered the rejection of the new rules - with those of Google, does not mean that you have to work on their behalf.
This was delivered to you but, in particular, politicians of the CDU and the lobbyists of the right holders. The campaign against the Reform was reported to be controlled by Algorithms. The protesters were declared to be purchased - an argument familiar from the environment of the AfD, where the "Antifa" often funded by the state. Also, the assertion that the Protest-Mails from a Bot-army, and not of people, is one of the distortions in the debate. It statements, so, we are wrong, as if they themselves were of a primitive Bot-programs written. You would have liked to see a Filter against some spells.
These attacks are reminiscent of a rhetoric according to which an externally-controlled fifth column supposedly to wreak havoc on the country - or in this case Europe. Google, Bots, Algorithms - anything to obscure the people supposedly in the spirit. No wonder that many of the protesters were angry because they felt they were taken seriously. Such stories should be left to the Competent and the nationalists, and conspiracy theorists.
Google Also played his turns
Yes, Google was afraid of the Reform, and used his powerful position to drive a campaign against it, aimed, in particular, to a Youtuber. But that doesn't make every citizen who is against the Reform, the puppet of a dark Power.
This accusation is hardly tenable: Who really believes that so many different actors, such as the Chaos Computer Club, a large part of the IT-professionals in Germany and the Federal Minister of justice are controlled by the Silicon Valley? All of them have spoken out against article 13 in its present Form. But above all, the narrative of the Manipulation by foreign powers, dangerous: it is for citizens to have a legitimate political opinion.
Also, the opponents continued with their talk of "censorship machine" on marginal escalation. In addition, the architects of the Reform, the insults to which they are currently exposed to. You must, however, be accused of, to have the issue of Filter technical Expertise ignored. Computer scientists are shocked by the plans - not only the anarchists with the Hacker Ethos among them, the release, anyway all the information "" want.
No politician must be a computer scientist, but he has the possibility, to experts. It seems to have been missed or only representatives of the rights holders is a member of. Imagine, a debate on Smoking bans would be conducted without lung doctors.
This is the key lesson from this dispute: The technical world and the policy must also be found in the year 2019, much closer together - instead of a dispute between two Lobby Store to let them drift apart. Then, the digital policy will recognise, hopefully, the citizens as a legitimate Lobby of your self.
