Estonian EU Presidency calls for massive internet filtering

Estonia holding the EU's rotating presidency has been pushing the 28 member states to strengthen indiscriminate internet surveillance – a Council of the European Union document leaked by Statewatch shows. The document brings evidence that the Estonian’s believe the best way to go is filtering uploads and by doing so cause even more harm for the EU’s new copyright Directive then the EC’s original did. The text of the leaked document suggests two options for each of the two most controversial proposals: the so-called “link tax” or ancillary copyright and the upload filter.
