The European Union and the U.S. Congress are working on reforms to their respective copyright laws, some of which have been deemed too extreme by critics. The EU, for instance, would like force websites to enable “upload filters” and to pay for linking to other websites, while the U.S. Congress would like to extend copyright to 144 years from the already quite long 70 years + life.
EU Copyright Law Changes
As soon as June 20, next week, the European Parliament will vote a draft legislation proposed by the European Commission (EU’s executive body). Critics have attacked the proposal as being quite extreme because it could impact many digital industries too severely.
Censorship Machines (Article 13)
One of the biggest issues with the new EU copyright reform proposal is the Article 13, which mandates that websites that accept user content (anything from videos to online comments) must have an “upload filter” that would block all copyrighted content that’s uploaded by users. Critics, such as Member of the European Parliament (MEP) Julia Reda, have also called upload filters “censorship machines.”
Under the censorship machine proposal, companies would be required to get a license for any copyrighted content that is uploaded to their site by its users. In other words, websites would be liable for any content their users upload to the site. It goes without saying that this could significantly hamper innovation on the internet.
For instance, YouTube or a site like it, probably wouldn’t even exist today if the site would have been liable for what users uploaded from day one. Not to mention that at the time the technology to identify potentially copyrighted content was quite rudimentary. Even today, YouTube has its occasional PR scandal over taking down content that shouldn’t have been taken down. Furthermore, those types of takedowns likely happen on a daily basis to many people, but they just don’t get enough media attention to turn into an issue for Google.
Some argue that upload filters wouldn’t be able to recognize “legal uses” of copyrighted content, even if they were 100% effective in identifying whether or not a piece of content is copyrighted or not. In this category would enter parodies, citations, and even internet memes, which typically make references to copyrighted content.
According to Reda, upload filters have already been made illegal by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), which ruled that an obligation to filter all user uploads violates the fundamental rights to privacy, freedom of expression, freedom of information and freedom to conduct a business.
Impact On Foreign Companies
Article 11 and Article 13 of the new copyright directive look like they would have a much bigger (and probably negative) impact on companies operating in the EU than the GDPR did. The GDPR, although supported by most internet users, has already put many foreign companies on edge. Many either don’t show their content to EU users, have put it behind a paywall, or simply don’t fully or properly company with the law.
If the new copyright directive passes, most American companies may simply decide that serving EU users is no longer worth it, which most likely wouldn’t be positive outcome for the EU as a whole.
If you’re an EU citizen and would like to express your opinion to your MEPs, Mozilla has created a free calling tool, while the EFF and multiple European groups have developed an easy web tool to email your own MEPs.
The European Union is updating its 2001 Copyright Directive, with a key committee vote coming up on June 20 or 21; on GDPR day, a rogue MEP jammed a mass censorship proposal into the draft that is literally the worst idea anyone in Europe ever had about the internet, ever.
Under “Article 13,” sites that allow the public to post anything that might be copyrighted — text, pics, videos, games, sounds, code — will have to run user submissions through a copyright filter that will check to see if it matches the a known copyrighted work. It’s YouTube’s perennially busted, overblocking Content ID, but for everything from Github to the copyrighted images on that band tee you wore in your Tinder profile.
These black boxes will have the unaccountable power of life or death over everything Europeans say to each other online. They’ll ingest everything we say to each other — likely sending it to one of the giant American tech companies that specialise in this kind of filtering — and render a judgment.
Anyone can add to the blacklist, too: under Article 13, sites have to let people claim new copyrighted works — but the rule has no penalties for abuse. Trolls can lay claim to every word ever posted to Wikipedia and stop anyone from quoting it on a WordPress site or Twitter or Facebook.

HEALTHY BABIES DO NOT JUST DIE!!
Did you know that that more than 5,000 babies die per year of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDs)? SIDS is not a real syndrome, but a classification when the cause is unknown. But SIDS rates tend to spike within THREE days of vaccine visits. Plus, SIDS rates increase with the number of vaccines given to infants. And the US gives 26 — more than any other country.
In fact, the US has the highest vaccine schedule in the developed world AND the highest infant death rate…
NOT A COINCIDENCE!!
Vaccines contain toxic additives — including aluminum, latex, formaldehyde, MSG, animal and aborted fetal cells, antibiotics — that are doing damage to our children.
Neurological and autoimmune disorders are skyrocketing. Epilepsy, autism, food allergies, asthma, type-1 diabetes, leukemia, ADHD, speech delays, tics, high-pitched screaming, SIDS, lupus, MS…and most are listed as possible side effects of these toxic vaccine ingredients.
Doctors cannot be sued when they declare the shots were safe, most often without actually even knowing the toxic ingredients in the needle. And the Pharmaceutical companies cannot be sued for putting babies lives at risk because they are one of only two industries protected from lawsuits when vaccines cause serious side effects or death — due to the 1986 National Childhood Immunization Law that gives blanket federal protection from lawsuits.
It’s just the parents left with terrible guilt for trusting a system build to put PROFITS over people…and the deaths continue to rise.
Check out these studies and reports. Protect your baby, do NOT inject.

Study Shows Chicken Pox Vaccine Responsible for Triggering Nationwide Shingles Epidemic
February 8, 2013
For the past several years, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been actively promoting the shingles vaccine as the solution to what some experts say is a building shingles epidemic.
But a new study published in the German medical journal Der Hautarzt, or “The Dermatologist” in English, has revealed that the childhood vaccine for chicken pox, a common viral disease related to shingles, may actually be directly responsible for triggering this epidemic.
Also known clinically as varicella-zoster virus (VZV), chicken pox is a relatively mild form of herpes virus that typically manifests itself during the early childhood years. Nearly all children who develop the condition at a young age, in fact, never develop it again, and are also usually imparted with lifelong immunity to both VZV and its relative, herpes zoster, a more severe form of the disease commonly referred to as shingles.
According to the new study; however, getting vaccinated with the chicken pox vaccine, which first became commercially available in the U.S. back in 1995, could damage this natural immune cycle. Based on the available data, getting vaccinated for chicken pox may end up blocking the mechanisms the body uses to develop its own natural immunity to both chicken pox and shingles, causing much worse infection later on down the road.
Study – Herpes zoster after varicella-zoster vaccination
A five-year-old girl, vaccinated against varicella-zoster virus (VZV) presented with clinical symptoms of herpes zoster in the 6th cervical dermatome. A VZV direct immune-fluorescence assay was negative three times but additional genotypical analysis showed a VZV strain genotype 2 (Oka vaccine strain). Therefore the diagnosis of a breakthrough varicella disease with the vaccine strain was established. An immunodeficiency was ruled out and the patient responded well to the initiated therapy. This case demonstrates that a negative VZV direct immunofluorescence assay does not exclude an infection with the vaccine strain.
Autopsy confirms Valley family’s suspicions that vaccine caused dog’s death
Monique Griego, KPNX 7:21 AM. MST June 15, 2017
The report found Milo’s cause of death was likely anaphylactic shock, triggered by a vaccine.
While it isn’t uncommon for pets to have an adverse reaction to a vaccine, most are minor. Anaphylaxis is one of the rarest and most severe types of reactions.
“Yes he suffered and he suffered bad,” said Jason, “and he shouldn’t have suffered like that, no dog or animal should ever suffer like this at all.”
12 News reached out to Banfield. Dr. Ari Zabell, a client advocate at Banfield Pet Hospital, sent this statement to 12 News regarding Milo’s death:
“At Banfield, we know how heartbreaking it can be to lose a member of the family. Although Milo had received these and other vaccines in the past without any adverse reaction, and such a response remains extremely rare, we were incredibly sad to learn an anaphylactic reaction to one of the vaccines was likely the cause of his passing. We immediately reported the incident to the vaccine manufacturers and will continue to remain in contact. Our hearts go out to Milo’s family during this difficult time.”
“We’re going to fight this to the end,” said Jason.
What happened to Milo is why the Baez family is now part of a growing group of pet owners taking aim at the traditional way pets are vaccinated.
Purdue Studies Show Vaccinated Dogs Can Develop Immune-Mediated Diseases
by TVR Staff
Published June 19, 2015
In an article published on the online magazine Dogs Naturally, Catherine O’Driscoll writes that research done at Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine shows vaccines can lead to life-threatening immune-mediated diseases in dogs. O’Driscoll is founder of the nonprofit organization Canine Health Concern (CHC).
In studies conducted by Purdue, the vaccinated animals developed autoantibodies to many of their own cell structures, including fibronectin (involved in tissue repair), laminin (important to many cell activities), cardiolipin (a common finding with autoimmune disorders) and collagen (an important protein that provides underlying support to the body and soft tissues), as well as to their own DNA.
The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Vaccine-Associated Feline Sarcoma Task Force has also looked into why approximately 160,000 cats in the United States develop terminal cancers at the vaccination site—an effect common enough that cats are generally vaccinated in the tail or a leg to allow for amputation if tumors develop. Vaccine-site cancers have similarly been reported for dogs and humans.
Modified live virus vaccines have an acknowledged association with a fast-acting, generally fatal disease known as autoimmune haemolytic anaemia (AIHA), and additional research has linked polyarthritis and amyloidosis to a combination vaccine given to dogs. Referring to a substantial body of research confirming that vaccines can cause significant brain and central nervous system damage in dogs, including encephalitis and brain inflammation and damage, O’Driscoll quotes a letter by Dr. Larry Glickman, who led the Purdue research group:
Our ongoing studies of dogs show that following routine vaccination, there is a significant rise in the level of antibodies dogs produce against their own tissues. Some of these antibodies have been shown to target the thyroid gland, connective tissue such as that found in the valves of the heart, red blood cells, DNA, etc…
Just as in the human population, some animals are not genetically able to withstand the vaccine challenge and are likely to suffer an adverse reaction to vaccination. In individuals with faulty B and T cell function, for example, the immune system may overreact and lead to allergies and other inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, pancreatitis, colitis or autoimmune diseases.

Stanford Scientist Claims Human Fetal DNA Fragments In Vaccines Cause Autism
Dr. Theresa Deisher, a Ph.D. in Molecular and Cellular Physiology from Stanford University has put forth a theory that human DNA fragments in vaccines could be one of the causes of autism. Deischer is a well accomplished and respected scientist. She has over 19 years of commercial biotechnology history and her research has often led to clinical trials.
“It is possible that these contaminating fragments could be incorporated into a child’s genome and disrupt normal gene function, leading to autistic phenotypes.”
Being that she’s a well-respected and incredibly accomplished scientist, she’s been somewhat left alone regarding her research into vaccines, which was done several years ago. These days, your entire life can be sabotaged for even suggesting that vaccines cause autism. Most of the current studies regarding the matter are sponsored by pharmaceutical companies. The justification of mass vaccine is, at its very core, a financial play by these mega-pharmaceutical corporations.
Most every peer reviewed study that shows any possibility of vaccines injuring people is abruptly covered up. Or, in the case of the CDC and a study showing bad effects on African Americans, just completely thrown out.

Let’s be honest. The man in this photo looks appalling: a middle-aged male suffering, all tucked up in his chair-bed ready to moan the day away.
A harsh description perhaps, but we can be certain the poor thing won’t take offence. Firstly, because the person in the picture is me.
And secondly because, “well you look appalling” is exactly what the doctor said as she shoved a swab up my nose to discover what on the inside was making the outside so disagreeable.
The answer came back the next morning: influenza A.
Not the much maligned man flu, but the real deal — which doesn’t discriminate on the basis of gender, race, class or, indeed, much else.
But how could I have the flu, when six weeks ago I’d had the flu shot and got a lollypop from the nurse for my trouble?
Merck CEO: Gardasil plus pipeline equals big things ahead for vaccines
by Eric Sagonowsky | Jun 12, 2017
Industry watchers are predicting GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi will post strong vaccines growth in the coming years, surpassing Merck in size along the way. But at a recent conference, Merck CEO Ken Frazier told investors not to underestimate his company’s presence in the field.
Speaking at the Sanford Bernstein Strategic Decision Conference, Frazier said Merck is “excited by our vaccine pipeline and I think that’s a really strong part of Merck’s business,” according to a Seeking Alpha transcript.
Frazier said many people “underestimate” Merck’s vaccine business, but he sees things differently. To reinforce the point, Frazier pointed to Gardasil’s recent sales strength and a new cancer vaccines partnership with Moderna Therapeutics as evidence of Merck’s promise in vaccines.
The unit does face challenges, even with top-selling Gardasil, thanks to a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention decision to reduce the recommended dosing schedule. Competitors are coming for at least one of its other top products. But Frazier sees the Moderna deal, and other pipeline projects, paying off down the line.
Last summer, Merck linked up with Moderna on a personalized cancer vaccine partnership, paying $200 million up front to the Boston biotech for R&D work through proof of concept. If the program generates human proof-of-concept data, Merck has the option to make an additional undisclosed payment.
And if the work reaches that point, the pair would split costs and profits in a global collaboration. Last week, Frazier said it’s an arrangement that holds “great promise for us.”
Study – Aluminum hydroxide injections lead to motor deficits and motor neuron degeneration
Gulf War Syndrome is a multi-system disorder afflicting many veterans of Western armies in the 1990–1991 Gulf War. A number of those afflicted may show neurological deficits including various cognitive dysfunctions and motor neuron disease, the latter expression virtually indistinguishable from classical amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) except for the age of onset. This ALS “cluster” represents the second such ALS cluster described in the literature to date. Possible causes of GWS include several of the adjuvants in the anthrax vaccine and others. The most likely culprit appears to be aluminum hydroxide. In an initial series of experiments, we examined the potential toxicity of aluminum hydroxide in male, outbred CD-1 mice injected subcutaneously in two equivalent-to-human doses. After sacrifice, spinal cord and motor cortex samples were examined by immunohistochemistry. Aluminum-treated mice showed significantly increased apoptosis of motor neurons and increases in reactive astrocytes and microglial proliferation within the spinal cord and cortex. Morin stain detected the presence of aluminum in the cytoplasm of motor neurons with some neurons also testing positive for the presence of hyper-phosphorylated tau protein, a pathological hallmark of various neurological diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease and frontotemporal dementia. A second series of experiments was conducted on mice injected with six doses of aluminum hydroxide. Behavioural analyses in these mice revealed significant impairments in a number of motor functions as well as diminished spatial memory capacity. The demonstrated neurotoxicity of aluminum hydroxide and its relative ubiquity as an adjuvant suggest that greater scrutiny by the scientific community is warranted.
The Impacts of Vaccines: Aluminum, Autoimmunity, Autism and Alzheimer’s
By Dr. Gary G. Kohls
Global Research, March 16, 2017
“I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all times because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine…has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers. — Dr. Bernard Dalbergue a former pharmaceutical industry physician with Gardasil manufacturer Merck, emphasis added.
“No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable…for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death.” – President Ronald Reagan, as he signed The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986, absolving drug companies from all medico-legal liability when vaccines kill or disable children
“The 271 vaccines in development span a wide array of diseases, and employ exciting new scientific strategies and technologies. These potential vaccines – all in human clinical trials or under review by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – include 137 for infectious diseases, 99 for cancer, 15 for allergies and 10 for neurological disorders.” — “Statement from the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) – the pharmaceutical industry’s trade association and lobbying group.
The #1 talking point of Big Pharma, Big Vaccine, the CDC, the AMA and the American Academy of Pediatrics when they try to justify the use of the neurotoxin aluminum (and mercury) in their vaccines is this one:
“humans shouldn’t be afraid of the small amount of either aluminum or mercury that is or has been in many human and animal vaccines.”
They say, truthfully, that aluminum is the third most common element in the earth’s crust, behind oxygen and silicone. Oxygen makes up about 47% of the earth’s mass. Silicon is second at 28%, followed by aluminum at 8%. They also say that aluminum may be just as harmless as oxygen and silicone and that humans are also exposed to aluminum in oral antacids and underarm anti-perspirants and that those products haven’t yet been “conclusively” proven to have caused “statistically-significant” health problems. They fail, of course, to mention that the “studies” that prove aluminum’s safety (and efficacy) were designed, performed and paid-for by the very industries that benefit from the unregulated, unexamined and widespread use of injectable aluminum in America’s over-vaccination schedules.
Measles Mortality Rates: The Efficacy and Safety of Vaccines. Role of The Medical Establishment
By Dr. Gary G. Kohls and David Brownstein
Global Research, May 22, 2017
“During the last 10 years, there has been one death from measles, but that patient was an adult woman who was on immunosuppressive medications and had other serious health problems. (But between) 2000 and 2017, there were 156 deaths related to the MMR vaccine.” – David Brownstein, MD – Holistic Family Practitioner
“Up to 90% of the total decline in the death rate of children between 1860-1965 because of whooping cough, scarlet fever, diphtheria, and measles occurred before the introduction of immunisations and antibiotics.” – Archie Kalokerinos, MD
“According to the records of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, from 1911 to 1935 the four leading causes of childhood deaths from infectious diseases in the U.S.A. were diphtheria, pertussis, scarlet fever, and measles. However, by 1945 the combined death rates from these causes had declined by 95% before the implementation of mass vaccine programs.” – Harold Buttram, MD
Critical thinkers and knowledgeable readers who have no ulterior motivation to blindly promote current over-vaccination agendas will agree that the Somali parents who have witnessed the devastating epidemic of Autistic Spectrum Disorders decimate so many of their children since coming to Minnesota, made a wise choice in refusing MMR vaccinations.
The Somali community has seen an alarming incidence of ASD (currently 1 out of every 32 of their children are afflicted, the worst prevalence rate in any Minnesota demographic group, even exceeding the 1 out of 48 among the fully vaccinated white male children in Minnesota). Recall that concurrent with the alarming epidemic of ASD was a dramatic increase in live virus vaccines, mercury-containing vaccine and aluminum-containing vaccines. The incidence of ASD before 1986 (when the vaccine industry was exempted from liability for vaccine deaths or injuries) was 1 in every 10,000 Minnesotan children and the rate went to 1 out of 68 by the time the number of antigens injected routinely into Minnesotan children went from a dozen or so to upwards of 80!
Something more than coincidence is at work. As noted vaccine researcher Dr Christopher Shaw has stated:
“Parents refusing to vaccinate according to the recommended CDC schedule are supported by the science.”
Somali children never came down with autism in their native land. It was only after they became war refugees and emigrated to Minnesota and started accepting CDC- and Minnesota Department of Health-mandated MMR live virus-containing vaccinations (often combined with mercury-containing and aluminum-containing vaccinations) that the epidemic devastated the community.
Polio: Syria update, Democratic Republic of the Congo
by News Desk
June 14, 2017
In an update on the polio ( circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus type 2–cVDPV2) outbreak in Syria, the World Health Organization (WHO) reports there is evidence of genetic linkage among three isolates of type-2 vaccine-derived polioviruses (VDPV2) isolated in the stool specimens of two acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) cases with dates of onset of paralysis on 5 March and 6 May 2017, and the contact specimen of an AFP case collected on 17 April 2017.
Since the confirmation of the first VDPV2 during May 2017, AFP surveillance has been intensified in the Governorate, especially in the Al Mayadeen district. As of 6 June 2017, a total of 58 AFP cases have been reported from the Governorate this year. In addition to the two cases that have tested positive for VDPV2, a further 11 have tested negative for polioviruses, with the remaining samples being under process in the laboratories or being transported to the laboratories.
Although access for vaccination is compromised due to prevailing insecurity in Deir Al Zour, the Governorate has been partially reached by several vaccination campaigns against polio and other vaccine-preventable diseases since the beginning of 2016. Most recently, two campaigns have been conducted in March and April 2017 using bivalent oral polio vaccine (bOPV). The most recent full trivalent oral polio vaccine (tOPV) round was conducted in October 2015; while tOPV rounds conducted in the first four months of 2016 only reached part of the target population of the Deir Al Zour Governorate. It is pertinent to mention that Syrian Arab Republic introduced two doses of inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) in the routine infant immunization schedule in 2008. Syrian Arab Republic switched from tOPV to bOPV for routine immunization on 1 May 2016.
Democratic Republic of the Congo
In the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), two separate circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus type 2s (cVDPV2s) have been confirmed. The first cVDPV2 strain has been isolated from two acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) cases from two districts in Haut-Lomami province, with onset of paralysis on 20 February and 8 March 2017. The second cVDPV2 strain has been isolated from Maniema province, from two AFP cases (with onset of paralysis on 18 April and 8 May 2017) and a healthy contact in the community.
Outbreak response plans are currently being finalized, consisting of strengthening surveillance, including active case searching for additional cases of AFP, and supplementary immunization activities (SIAs) with monovalent oral polio vaccine type 2 (mOPV2), in line with internationally-agreed outbreak response protocols.
WHO assesses the risk of further national spread of these strains to be high, and the risk of international spread to be medium.
15,000 people marched in Rome to protest new mandatory vaccine law
15,000 free-vaxxers marched in Rome under the hot summer sun to protest the new law that will increase mandatory vaccines from 4 to 12. They call themselves Free-Vaxxers to distinguish themselves from the No-Vaxxers, they want to stress that they are not anti vaccines, but they are pro-freedom; the freedom to choose if, when and how much to vaccinate their kids.
The Vaxxed team arrived in Italy for the movie premier of Vaxxed welcomed by the public and the local associations. The documentary immediately created a wave of consciousness in the public, a wave that the government has been trying to crush, first by censoring Vaxxed, and now by issuing the strictest mandatory vaccine law in Europe. Vaxxed has inspired people to come together to fight united for the right to choose to vaccinate their kids or not.
It was a true historic moment, for the very first time so many parents, doctors, politicians came together. So far this has been the largest march against mandatory vaccines in the world.
