Copyright Filter Filters Warning About Copyright Filters

An automated copyright filter wrongly had Google de-index a blog post written by an EU parlimentarian, which warned against the use of automated copyright filters and the impending Article 13 copyright directive.

Specifically — and it would be hard to make this up if we tried — Topple Track’s automated filter got Google to de-index this blog post by Reda, in which she details the problems in Article 13 and how it will create mandatory censorship machines, that would likely lead to massive internet censorship of perfectly legitimate content.
