Techdirt Podcast Episode 169: MEP Julia Reda On EU's Dangerous Copyright Proposal

from the copyright-problems dept

As we've noted recently, the current copyright reform proposal being considered by the EU is full of extremely dangerous ideas, from mandated filters to a "link tax". This week, we're joined by European Parliament member Julia Reda to talk about the details of the regulatory process and the problems with the current proposal.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    I'll be interviewed by the BBC's Click program on Article 13 of the upcoming EU Copyright reform and I'll be sure to give a shout out to techdirt as one of my primary sources on the topic. The show should go live at 19:32 CEST on June 19th 2018. Click's url is https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p002w6r2

    Hopefully TD gets a little traffic spike from the plug. :)

    I love your content and community,

    Hugo
