" […] Germany’s top TV personalities, like Jan Böhmermann."
That is a bit of a stretch… Still, publicity is needed, and every little bit helps.

I watched the video and I got really furious. This person is ruining the web and has no idea, NO IDEA AT ALL how it works.

Well, whaddaya know, Angie was right - this is ‘Neuland’.

Plus our tradition of sending all the guys they wanted to get rid of in the Bundestag/Bundesrat/Landtag to Brussels/Strassbourg. You’re probably old enough to remember Bangemann, right?

The reform of copyright law in this form does not benefit anyone, let alone consumers.

Rhetorical point: if you make something worse, it is not “reform.” Do not let your opponents call it that. Reform makes things better. Remember Republican “tax reform?” How was your refund this year?
