🇬🇧 Huge successes and major setbacks after the vote on the #DigitalServicesAct. We won backing for a right to use services anonymously, but there will be mandatory 📱number registration for adult content creators.

When Internet Service Providers block access to sites, they often block more than intended, depriving us of access to legal content. But Parliament won’t ensure that illegal content is removed at the source, rather than clumsily blocked by ISPs. #rejected
@echo_pbreyer So I saw one of these boosted and thought it looked like good news. But after reading the thread it seems like a massive string of setbacks, with a lip-service vote on one issue to generate media spin.
What use is the ToS vote, if surveillance marketing is allowed to continue?
@echo_pbreyer how would that ever work? Let’s say someone uploads literal CP on a somali server. What are you gonna do to remove it at source instead of blocking it? Wave a finger in their general direction?
An authority able to remove something from the internet no matter the server and domain origin would be much more dangerous than any ISP blocking derpage. Thankfully it’s pretty much impossible.
@Amikke @echo_pbreyer Most sysadmins, server operators, hosters and human beings disapprove of that kind of content and would delete it asap. Also they would most likely terminate those accounts.

The rest are criminals and should be investigated, observed and charged by using old fashioned police work. I am pretty sure that it's also illegal in Somalia.
@HackerJoe @echo_pbreyer oh yeah, investigating and observing criminals on the internet is a very successful endeavor, that’s why The Pirate Bay is happily chugging along after nearly 20 years of service, to much government and lobbyists annoyance.
You overestimate how successful the law enforcement is against people they can’t spy on every day. All it takes is one country that a) doesn’t have the means of enacting international takedowns, b) doesn’t cooperate on international takedowns, c) disagrees with our values or d) simply doesn’t give a fuck, and the whole system becomes completely helpless without an ability to block offending content.
