Today many websites, led by Wikipedia, are going black for one day in protest of the current proposal for an EU directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market, especially against the articles 11, 12 and 13. Since this forum's usership is spanning all around the world, a blackout wouldn't be fitting here.

However, to all EU citizens:
Please inform yourself on the problems of this reform proposal, go to your local protests on Saturday, 23. March '19, sign the petition (the biggest European petition in the history of European petitions with about 5 million signatures) and go vote for EU Parliament on 26. May '19. Observe who's voting for the reform in its current state (and thus against freedom of information and freedom of speech). Contact your local MEPs, try to change their mind. And don't fall for antieuropean populists, for their doing is never the solution...

https://saveyourinternet.eu/act/ <- here you'll find much information on the reform, why it hurts us as users and us as creators, who is pushing this and how to contact them, and where your local protests on the 23rd of March are
https://twitter.com/Senficon/ <- this is MEP Julia Reda of the German Pirate Party, vice chair of The Greens/EPA faction in EU Parliament and probably the single best source for up-to-date-information on the current state of the topic
https://www.youtube.com/kanzleiwbs <- if you're capable of understanding German, this is a lawyer who's been covering the topic for a long time. His videos are detailed and well researched while also explaining everything very well for us normal people without legal training

So, apparently we will start deleting links from our websites top avoid paying tax, right?
How ridiculous is paying a tax for linking someone's page when the person him/herself does not get anything from it?
