Press Release. Thursday, September 13, 2018.
Wednesday, September 12, was a dark day for online freedoms and for all those laboring on a daily basis for the defense and promotion of a free, open, neutral and decentralized Internet. The European Parliament voted 438 to 226 for generalization of the automated filtering of uploads. This is a serious blow, but April will keep on campaigning in the lead up to the upcoming trialogue negotiations, and to the final vote in Parliament, which should occur at the beginning of 2019.
