EU wants to require platforms to filter uploaded content (including code)

The problem is that it doesn't stop there.
"All apps and websites where users can upload and publish media are required to get copyright licenses for all content. These platforms are considered to “communicate to the public” all those user uploads, which means that the platforms would be directly responsible for copyright infringements committed by their users, as if it were the platform’s employees themselves uploading these works."

As mentioned by @Clyde
This is a campaign of the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) and the OpenForum Europe (OFE) as those are well known and respected organisations
This type of monitoring is unsustainable. All it would encourage is just distribution of closed binaries and further obfuscation of code.

@rion Signed it today, thanks for the announcement. You should mention that this is a campaign of the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) and the OpenForum Europe (OFE) as those are well known and respected organisations. People can learn this on the website, but some might not follow a link to a site of an unknown operator. Just a hint to improve your venture. :)
