Folks I suppose this news got quite discrete lately due to many other events related by medias.
So I wanted to post a about the new reform of RGPD and why it should matter at least to Europeans that you know about it. Steady your belts !
Here’s a good link from Wired, it explains nicely the text.
In summary why should you be worried about this text ?
- It allows GAFA to filter your uploads via algorithms and in the event they consider that it infringes any copyright (which might not be the case at all), your content may not be published
- Allowing private entities to control and censor your publications before they even reach the public raises the risk of deviations such as opinion censorship
I mean : it is definitely important to protect any individual’s work and to preserve basic rights such as free expression.
I don’t wanna live in Black Mirror IRL and am pretty annoyed by this text.
Please share your opinions on the topic guys !
