A highly controversial copyright reform has been adopted by the EU legislators this spring. But how worried should we be about the proposed #linktax and #uploadfilters?

The proposal has been widely criticized by human rights advocates, internet activists, youtubers and millions of ordinary citizens, as well as all kinds of tech companies. On the other side we have the content industry and European collecting societies that hope to benefit from the directive.
