Petition: Copycrime.eu versus Copyright/mafia

Die nächste Stufe der Kriminalisierung des bürgerlichen Kommunikationsalltags im Internet steht an: IPRED2, eine EU-Richtlinie, die am 24. April verabschiedet wird. Mit "IP" ist nicht "Internet Protocol" sondern "Intellectual Property" gemeint, hier fängt der Schwachsinn im Grund schon an. Die EFF ruft dazu auf, den EU-Parlamentariern in letzter Minute was Vernünftiges auszurichten.

On April 24th, the European Parliament will vote on IPRED2, the Second Intellectual Property Enforcement Directive. With one stroke, they risk turning thousands of innocent EU citizens and businesses into copycriminals. Only you can stop them. Sign our petition now!

Why?

If IPRED2 passes in its current form, "aiding, abetting, or inciting" copyright infringement on a "commercial scale" in the EU will become a crime. Penalties for these brand new copycrimes will include permanent bans on doing business, seizure of assets, criminal records, and fines of up to EUR 100,000. IPRED2's backers say these copycrimes are meant only for professional criminals selling fake merchandise. But Europe already has laws against these fraudsters. With many terms in IPRED2 left unclear or completeley undefined - including "commercial scale" and "incitement" - IPRED2 will expand police authority and make suspects out of legitimate consumers and businesses, slowing innovation and limiting your digital rights.
