Last week the UK Govt published a new draft of their #OnlineSafetyBill, making UK corps liable for jail time unless they censor "harmful" content (without defining harmful). Targeted at Big Tech it instead directly threatens Matrix. Read https://matrix.org/blog/2021/05/19/how-the-u-ks-online-safety-bill-threatens-matrix & raise the alarm.
Note they actually do take your arguments into account in the Impact Analysis (pages 106+). I fully support your position, and it should be reinforced by other projects, but their assurances don't look bad at this stage.
@matrix I worry that people who are still using V.H.S. and still can't program them to record are making laws about tech.
Add to that, some have ulterior motives, we're definitely in for loosing more freedoms unless we make ourselves heard.
