Canned Responses

I wrote to a few MEPs about Article 13 and sadly a number of them have sent canned responses along the lines of:

  • I’ve spoken to industry lobbyists who say something must be done to enforce copyright
  • Article 13 is something
  • Therefore Article 13 must pass

It’s disappointing. We’re not saying nothing needs to be done - the issue is that Article 13 is wildly unfit for purpose, and potentially hugely damaging to the internet as a side effect.
