Looming EU copyright rules – tackling Google news article scraping, installing upload filters – under fire from all sides

It's safe to kick a dead horse

Nobody likes Google (this side of Atlantic, anyway). It's easy to rally against someone who is rich.

But neither politicians nor journalists dare to point their collective finger at those who are, under the current legislation, the real criminals here: those millions of uses who share content that they forbidden to share.

Is it because that's too hard to tackle them? Is it because that would make you rather unpopular among your readers/electorate? Or is it because the concept of "intellectual property", the way it is legislated now, does not sit well with the society at large?..
