Ooops. Apparently the EU’s police plods are demanding that take down all of the Project Gutenberg content

“Included in the list of takedown demands are a bunch of the Archive’s “collection pages” including the entire Project Gutenberg page of public domain texts, its collection of over 15 million freely downloadable texts”

These form-pushers obviously have no clue that this will have quite the opposite to the intended effect. Instead of suppressing it, they will cause the material to become even more widely available and known. Partly through all the publicity, and partly through the efforts of free-speech activists to mirror an uncensored Gutenberg. They’re also politically clueless, having managed to instantly bring into disrepute the EU’s new laws.
