Dear list,

If you are in Germany, you might have noticed, an anti-upload-filters banner went online on Wikipedia this morning. [1] The anti-filters copyright reform banner will be delivered until late Friday night to 50% of impressions from the Germany IP range and leads people to a new blogpost on this topic, one that inter alias makes suggestions for sharing the message on social media. [2]

The timing for the banner is intentional, as the German position has a lot of weight in the Council of the EU, where we are right between two important meetings. The new German Justice minister Katarina Barley is also a guest at re:publica. [3]
