    And you expect different behavior by any neo-fascist “government” because…? Try reading CS Lewis’ “The Abolition of Man” or J Goldberg’s “Liberal Fascism”. Get a grip.

    So glad Obama gave away the internet that Al Gore created….

  • Read the bit about Link Tax.

      Good news for lawyers.
      I don’t see that they could ban any links to news articles with copyrighted content. After all, it’s just directing traffic to those sources, and they want traffic don’t they?
      They’d have to scan all pieces of text to identify any identical published text elsewhere – an impossibly resource consuming job. Currently there’s a “fair use” proviso which allows a short extract provided credit is given. Would they remove or further curtail that? How would they detect paraphrase?

    Of liberals and conservatives who wants total control of people and therefore, who benefits the most from censorship?

    I don’t like the EU any more than anyone else here, but the headline is misleading. The issue is copyright laws in the age of the internet. I doubt the proposed regulations are the correct ones, but digital copyright is an important issue and copyright laws do need to be brought into the 21st century.

    I have come to despise Google but one thing they can do is threaten to put their entire operations in the EU behind a paywall.

    Don’t need any more evidence that Europe is collapsing.

    This must be done immediately, to clamp down on any truth about migrant behaviour.
