The worst of the plans behind the EU's new copyright laws and how they directly affect you.

“It's appalling to see the European Commission promise one thing in public, while planning the opposite in private. This leak shows that the commission plans to ignore more than 37,500 individuals and preempt the results of their own consultation, showing a remarkable contempt for evidence-based policy making.”
Leak spills out anger over watered down access and strong support for ancillary levy.

The European Commission have shown themselves incapable of listening, recent leak shows they intend to push ahead with link tax and ignore public consultation process.

So let's make sure the #TPP dies in Congress this year!

If in Canada, make sure to voice your concerns at: letstalktpp.ca #LetsTalkTPP
Signature alone isn’t enough to bring a treaty into force. It has to be ratified, and to do that means it has to be internally approved by all the TPP parties through their own legislative systems

If the US doesn't ratify the TPP (which I hope it doesn't) it's highly unlikely that the other countries can meet the minimum qualifiers to bring it into force.

We have been putting together some key myth-busting images that should put the link tax to bed once and for all, showing decision-makers why it's just not going to work.

The explanation for a 26-fold increase in the interception of Canadians' private communications in the course of a year is far from satisfactory.
The Communications Security Establishment intercepted 342 private communications in 2014-15, compared to just 13 for the previous year, for reasons they won’t explain

WhatsApp users prepare to be disappointed, big time.
Now that WhatsApp is sharing phone numbers with Facebook, it's no longer the security oasis users relied on.

“It's dangerous. It undermines basic democratic rights here in Canada. It’s really extreme. It's difficult to see this government or any federal government in Canada thinking that this is the kind of idea they should be running with.”
The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police has passed a resolution asking for a law that would oblige people to hand over the passwords to their electronic devices if there was approval from a judge. Currently, police can obtain warrants from judges to allow them to search someone’s home if they have solid grounds to…

The way creativity fuses with conversation. The way self-expression can find a willing audience. The fact that I can create and share something without asking permission or seeking approval. And the many voices I'd never have heard before, who I now count as friends.

Well, it was already proven that Apple was right, at least in the logical and mathematical sense of proof; and in a moral sense they were also clearly doing the right thing for both their customers and for society at large, provided of course that one's morals don't conflict with logic and mathematics. I don't think the NSA leaks, no Microsoft's recent key-handling FUBAR really add anything to the proof, per se; though of course they both offer a big fat "I told you so" to pass around.
