@taoeffect @arteteco Here's a German documentary on Wikipedia from 2015. The title translates into "The Dark Side of Wikipedia"
youtu.be/wHfiCX_YdgA
This led to a sequel and now an ongoing series of videos, uncovering a whole network of high-profile editors using Wiki to push political propaganda and smear activists, journalists and politicians, especially in regard to Middle Eastern politics. Pretty radical stuff there

@Solobasssteve @Doctor_J_ I think you're absolutely on point. Calling this "a great day for Europe’s creators" - if being serious - really just shows how far detached from reality these people are.
Then again, consolidation of power and "strengthening the strong" has always been a primary objective of EU policy.

Anyone got any links to a specifically music take on the negative impact of that horrible EU copyright directive? I very much appreciated @doctorow's writing for the EFF, but would be handy to get a music take...

"Nothing to Hide", an independent documentary dealing with surveillance and its acceptance by the general public through the "I have nothing to hide" argument. vimeo.com/189016018
