European digital rights groups and open science advocates are mobilising against proposed EU copyright changes they say would hamper information sharing.
At issue is a proposal, which first landed last year, to stop people uploading copyrighted material by applying a YouTube-like filter against content fingerprints.
That proposal fell out of the headlines, giving way to discussions of a “link tax” opposed so strongly by outfits like Google and Facebook that it was watered down to at least letting publishers demand permission for aggregation (or if it's not forthcoming, demand payment or takedown).
