New EU Copyright Regulations a Possibility
A large group of Internet pioneers have sent an open letter to the European Union urging it to scrap a proposal to introduce automated upload filters, arguing that it could damage the internet as we know it.

Not only will they be scanning the content but rejecting anything that doesn’t pass their copyright rules. Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia tells Click why he’s concerned about the changes.
