Description Audible Magic Corp., a US producer of media filtering software (see DE Wikipedia: is currently touring the policy makers in Brussels, who are about to decide whether there will be a general rule to implement content pre-filtering on all digital platforms with significant amounts of user-generated content. Such filters are meant – at least at the current stage – to prevent copyright infringements by keeping infringing content from being uploaded to the platforms. They can, of course, later also be used to censor any other kind of recognisable content, and thus pose a massive threat to freedom of speech on the net. But even for the copyright-related purpose they are probably unsuitable, as they cannot process, let alone weigh the context of an upload, as a human can. Therefore the exceptions & limitations built into copyright law would become practically irrelevant, once such a net-wide filtering infrastructure based on automated filtering is in place.

In this session we want to discuss whether and how the technology behind Audible Magic's filtering solutions can be hacked in order to analyse its capabilities and shortcomings. If successful, this analysis could greatly influence the policy discussions on the EU level, that will enter a crucial phase in early 2018.
