Google is truly the new Microsoft, moving to the second phase of Embrace-Extend-Extinguish with regards to e-mail:
Firefox admits they will eventually be sending all of your DNS to Cloudflare. Cloudflare will monetize your internet browsing, no matter how much their PR people say they are.
If you want to disable that, go to "about:config", and set "network.trr.mode" to 5.
The values are: 0 - default off, 1 - race, 2 TRR first, 3 TRR only, 4 shadow, 5 off by choice
Things that can still stop #Article13:
-Council of Ministers can still reject it
-Individual countries still have to create their own laws to enforce it (this is not like GDPR, which came into force directly). This could cause a lot of friction against the law.
-Article 13's requirements are technically impossible: it requires filters to stop all piracy while allowing all fair use. This makes the law vulnerable to being rewritten/rejected at some point in the future.
A pearl from Saturday's protest against the proposed EU #copyright reform.
It says "Hello, I am the political advisor of Axel Voss."
DISOBEY COPYRIGHT 3/3
Some may wish to reform it, towards attempts to unconditionally legalise remixing, educational use and not-for-profit sharing between individuals. Others may actively refuse copyright altogether, demonstrating the collective culture of sharing, through decentralised/distributed services and protocols, as a basic and essential precondition to being, acting and fighting together all forms of oppression.
DIVERSITY OF TACTICS, COMMON STRATEGY:
DOWN WITH OPPRESSIVE COPYRIGHT!
DISOBEY COPYRIGHT 2/3
Weaponised against the People, copyright serves as pretext to control and extract all possible financial benefit from our communications, our cultural practices, our expression and our lives online and offline. Such a "copywrong" and its enforcement rely heavily on mass-surveillance.
BEYOND THE VOTE ON #ARTICLE13 WE MUST RESIST COPYRIGHT — OPPOSE AND DISOBEY IT WHENEVER NECESSARY!
SHARING IS CARING!
For at least 20 years we have fought a copyright regime which has been used as a tool of oppression: EUCD, "three strikes", ACTA, #Article13, etc. Like a Terminator, it always comes back after we've defeated it, to control the means of distribution of cultural works, serving the interests of the entertainment industry.
