please keep in mind that this week is a Strasbourg week and all MEPs can be reached to
their Strasbourg phone numbers.
I know that this might be complicated .. but I think it is useful to have it in mind.

Mythbusting: Article 13 Misunderstanding & Misinformation
Journalist Glyn Moody<https://twitter.com/glynmoody>
debunks the misunderstanding
and misinformation out there about Article 13 in a new article on Boing
ml>, as he
observes that "the copyright directive in general, and Article 13 in particular, very
often hinge[s] on (...) subtle points". In his article he explains the EU legislative
process, and why we need to act now, and tackles the fact that:
* it's still filtering, even if you don't say the word "filtering";
* this goes way beyond notice-and-takedown;
* there's no magic filter for all types of content;
* the GDPR is an ally, not the enemy.
