The European Union are currently in the process of implementing a legislative for a new copyright law.
Part of the process are so called “upload filters” in Artikel 13 of that law proposal. These upload filters would require that every media that gets uploaded to any platform or website by anyone needs to be checked against a database of copyright holders.
In order to protest against EU proposal, this website will follow the German Wikipedia website and be blacked out on this day, March 21st from 0:00 UTC to 23:59 UTC.
Please call your EU representative today and request to them that they put down this proposal in parliament!
