Per the EFF, the EU passed Article 13.

As a reminder, if the passes the plenary vote, there's no longer any freedom of speech on the EU-Internet: all speech has to be ISP-approved, and all mention of any copyrighted material stripped away.

This is going to WRECK Mastodon, as well as all other federated services.

Please, if you're in the EU, contact your legislators.

Jokes on the EU, torrents are unaffected. As well as indian servers

If you have an oracle that:
has secret s,
takes x \in G,
returns y = x^s

What's this problem called? Is there a reduction from it to discrete log or diffie-hellman problem?

I'm thinking that the EU article 13 is an excuse for some company to sell API access to some copyright filtering service.

Step 2: Some corporations releases a service that allows you to filter content in exchange for some monetary fees.
Step 3: Corporative success!

I got the EU...
