The EU is about to update to force sites to use YouTube-style content filters on all uploads.

This is a terrible idea:

Some MEPS are already fighting back:

Please email/call your MEP as soon as you can (as in today!), tell them that these changes are dangerous to European freedom, business and culture.

By the way, this applies to people in the UK as well. Britain is still a member state and still has MEPs sitting in the European Parliament.
