A Council of the European Union document leaked by Statewatch on 30
August reveals that during the summer months, that Estonia (current EU
Presidency) has been pushing the other Member States to strengthen
indiscriminate internet surveillance, and to follow in the footsteps of
China regarding online censorship. Standing firmly behind its belief
that filtering the uploads is the way to go, the Presidency has worked
hard in order to make the proposal for the new copyright Directive even
more harmful than the Commission's original proposal, and pushing it
further into the realms of illegality.


Well, Theresa May is way ahead of them on that.
