@maryjane but they also want to make tor illegal... at least in Germany! @eloisa @Gargron

@jr @maryjane @eloisa @Gargron they do???

Even if they do you can still access tor with a VPN (which most do already) so what's the point?

@Jack_Frost they want to make it illegal to run tor nodes for example because "you help crime with this"

@maryjane @eloisa @Gargron

@jr @maryjane @eloisa @Gargron seriously?

I guess most nodes will just be hosted outside the EU shrug
🤷🏻‍♂️🇪🇺

@Jack_Frost it's not a EU thing at the moment as far as I know... only German federal concil started to decide about it as far as I know

@jr hmm that's messed up. Why does it seem lately the EU is making bad choices? They're usually the ones with common sense 🇪🇺

@Jack_Frost I'm not sure... but as I said at the moment this is only for Germany... but from Germany the step up to the EU is not far...

Recently, the handling of online defamation has become a hot topic on many mass media as well as social media channels. News Article for Reference: https://www.jiji.com/sp/article?k=2020052500387 In response to these reports, it is expected that lawsuits and disclosure requests will become more publicly known; and government agencies will order stricter enforcement in addition to tightening regulations. However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately.
