The reformed copyright act is threatening openPetition and the entire internet!

According to Article 13 online platforms will prospectively be responsible for checking copyrights themselves. Only with so-called automatic upload filters they are able to review the innumerable data contents that users upload.

Problem: computer programs cannot recognise irony, satire and quotations.
Consequence: anticipatory censorship or existential risk through unlimited liability.
The real question: should algorithms decide what we are allowed to see?
Our answer: protection of copyrights, yes, but not at the expense of freedom of expression.

Tomorrow, the 21st of March 2019, openPetition will be offline for 24 hours, clearly stating where #article13 can lead.

I support freedom of expression and go to the demo.
