The European Court of Justice #EuGH has determined hat the owner of an internet access is liable for any copyright infringement (share/upload/download) committed by anyone using that access.
Things don't bode well in #europe. I wonder if #self-hosting is worth it anymore and whether participating in #ActivityPub networks will not put you in danger of being pursued by the @copyright protection wing?
@pete don't give up. They can't sue all of us.
But seriously, yes things are grim. I'm not so scared running a small instance but would be hesitant to run a larger one. Europe is playing into the hands of Facebook et al.
