Public Article 13 Filter - Don't leave this to BigTech

As the European Union is about to adopt what is known as Article 13, we must not leave the implementation of Upload Filters / Auto Licensing to Big Tech. I know there is a monstrous effort required, but the only way we can save the openness and accessibility of the web is by doing this open-source/donation-based. I have started a GitHub Project to organize the efforts. I'll be contributing a lot to that the coming days, but you might want to join me in the discussions/decisions. Maybe we can do this.

    Good for me, I'm going to do the opposite. Check how the filters operate and build browser extensions that alter images etc until they don't match. Upload.
    They can suck a big one.

    I think both ideas are good. Free 'filters' for smaller platforms, and evaluation of evasion technologies against bigger ones.

    @hypervtechnics exactly. It's a form of protest.

    @Kimmax I totally agree. Our primary focus should be to get this law abolished, be it by voting, protesting or making it senseless by countermeasures like yours.

    My suggestion is a secondary course of action - if there is no other way, at least implement it in a way that doesn't give Big Tech control over all our info. If we had left the implementation of the web to corps 30 years ago, we'd all be watching a very elaborate and expensive TV right now.

    @ewpratten great! did you have a look at the github? I can use some help getting the discussions started. There are quite a few decisions to be made

    @KDSBest nah, that's too obvious. More like
    shouldfilter() => Math.rand() > 0.5

    @Vuetiful sure, I agree
