For the past few years, there's been a dedicated effort by some to get mandatory filters into EU copyright rules, despite the fact that this would destroy smaller websites, wouldn't work very well, and would create all sorts of other consequences the EU doesn't want, including suppression of free speech.

One of the many problems with this is that the people who demand these things tend to have little to no understanding of how the internet actually works. They get upset about finding some small amount of infringing content on a large internet platform (YouTube, Facebook, etc.) and demand mandatory filtering. Of course, both YouTube and Facebook already have expensive filters. But this impacts every other site as well -- sites that cannot afford such filtering.

I suspect the answer to my question posed above is that this agenda is being pushed by the same old folks taking "donations", "gifts" and other incentives to act in an anti democratic way, theses people shy away from open scrutiny of their plans and are likely to make backroom deals that serve no one except those whom make their revenues from operating monopolies or cartels akin to a mafia, is this what we expect from EU commisioners ?

This is the face of the effort to attack our open internet in the EU zone, keep your eyes on him  :alien:

We can rest easy for a bit I feel but what about when retirement looms for such gladiators,do we have to face poorly thought out legislation every few years simply because bureacracy is more important to the EU that the privacy and well being of the massed public whom they claim to represent ?
