French police issue terrorist takedown order against Project Gutenberg
French police issue terrorist takedown order against Project Gutenberg

Official EU Agencies Falsely Report More Than 550 Archive.org URLs as Terrorist Content

Not just Project Gutenberg - the entirety of the Prelinger Collection, the entirety of the collection of live Grateful Dead shows, the Smithsonian's entire online collection, and at least one recording of the proceedings of the US House of Representatives from December 2010, amongst many other links, were all named as being terrorist content.

Quote:Thus, we are left to ask – how can the proposed legislation realistically be said to honor freedom of speech if these are the types of reports that are currently coming from EU law enforcement and designated governmental reporting entities? It is not possible for us to process these reports using human review within a very limited timeframe like one hour. Are we to simply take what’s reported as “terrorism” at face value and risk the automatic removal of things like THE primary collection page for all books on archive.org?

In these uncertain times, it's OK not to be OK. Don't be afraid to ask somebody for help.

.... After filtering out the nationalist BS in the comments section, I agree on the take that this is actually a move by corporations to remove free sources of information from the Internet.
Yasuri Nanami is my number one waifu, if only because she would horribly murder all the others if they didn't shut up and toe the line.

"If our friendship depends on things like space and time, we've destroyed our own brotherhood! But overcome space, and all we have left is Here. Overcome time, and all we have left is Now. And in the middle of Here and Now, don't you think that we might see each other once or twice?"
