UK PM May seeks Brexit fix in crisis talks

British Prime Minister Theresa May scrambled to put together a new Brexit strategy on Thursday after MPs rejected her EU divorce deal, and insisted she could not rule out a potentially damaging "no-deal" split. Governments across Europe are triggering plans designed to avoid logjams at ports and airports when trade barriers go up should London fail to find a Plan B. The government held individual talks with MPs from rival parties after narrowly surviving a confidence vote brought on by the cru...

Brexit Notes

UK’s Jonathan Pie does Brexit (content warning: contains some Anglo-Saxon mono- and poly- syllables). Now that May’s plan has been defeated, it’s not even dead. The default remains a hard crash-out, which no one outside the Kremlin who has brain cells and lacks either a foreign home or a few million to hedge with, should want. But the option of giving up the whole thing as a bad job appears to lack a majority in Parliament, even if they could find a way to get a vote on it. Whether there’...

What Miley Cyrus’ birthday tweet to her hubby has to do with EU’s upcoming Copyright Reform

Welcome to my insidious trap. We all know it’s never the best or the most important articles that get clicks. It’s always ‘THE ANSWER WILL SHOCK YOU’, celebrity gossip, and cute cats that hog all of that sweet sweet traffic. I usually cover ‘boring’ (yet incredibly important) regulation stuff, like EU’s highly contested Copyright Reform — which doesn’t get read a whole lot. But after seeing ‘Miley Cyrus wishes Liam Hemsworth a happy birthday all over social media and it’s the sweetest‘ I decided...

Poland, Take Action Now: Tell Negotiators to Oppose Article 13 and 11

Sześć lat temu Polacy wyszli na ulice by uratować Europę przed ACTA – międzynarodową umową handlową, negocjowaną z inicjatywy Stanów Zjednoczonych, która groziła wprowadzeniem szeroko zakrojonej cenzury i nadzoru w Internecie w imię rzekomej ochrony praw autorskich. Dziś Polacy znów są w centrum uwagi , walcząc z “ACTA2”: Dyrektywą w sprawie praw autorskich na jednolitym rynku cyfrowym. Wasza pomoc nigdy nie była bardziej potrzebna!

Belgium: Say No To Article 13 and 11

L’Union européenne est sur le point de donner encore plus de pouvoir à une poignée d’entreprises géantes états-uniennes en technologie, en échange contre des accords temporaires de partage des bénéfices avec une poignée d’entreprises géantes européennes de divertissements. Cela entraînerait en contrepartie une censure de masse et affaiblirait encore plus la position de négociation des artistes professionnels européens.

Cela représente une erreur dangereuse, car ces articles pourraient écraser les jeunes pousses européennes en technologie, ce qui concentrerait le pouvoir entre les mains des grandes entreprises états-uniennes en technologie, tout en exposant un demi-milliard d’Européens à une censure ...

Es besteht wenig Hoffnung, dass die Artikel 11 und 13, die die Macht haben, kleine europäische Tech-Startups zu vernichten, verbessert oder gestrichen werden. Eher wird sich die Macht in den Händen Amerikanischer Hightech-Unternehmen konzentrieren, während eine halbe Milliarde EuropäerInnen einer unzurechenbaren algorithmischen Zensur ausgeset...

Open letters to the people of Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and Poland: save us all from mandatory internet censorship!

The EU plan to mandate censoring filters for online speech to catch copyright infringement could be finalised as early as next week, and our best hope for halting it is to get the national governments of key EU member states to reject the proposal at that "trilogue" committee meeting. In particular, it's important for netizens from Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and Poland to contact their governments and urge them to block Articles 11 and 13 of the new Copyright Directive.
