WMDK has signal-boosted the campaign on social media, linked to our
march letter to the Danish Minister for Culture where we explain why
art. 13 is problematic and sent informational emails to the WMDK and
Danish Wikipedia mailing-lists explaining the issue and how to contact
MEPs using the website.

*Good News: We're Getting Heard & the Message is Spreading*
BBC News picked-up <https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-44412025> the
#SaveYourInternet campaign (see the Tweet
<https://twitter.com/BBCTech/status/1005040338401193984>). A big

<https://www.openrightsgroup.org>) for the thorough explanation to BBC.
In the short time since the campaign has been launched, the
#SaveYourInternet hashtag has already been used in over 5.000 tweets
by almost 3.000 people, but *we still need to make a lot more noise to
get our message heard by everyone*!

*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 Boing
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.
