"I know of no other technical measures that could be used to prevent licensing violations. In this respect, it comes down to upload filter, "said the SPD politician on Friday in Brussels. The federal government of the CDU, CSU and SPD rejects the mandatory use of such filters in the coalition agreement as disproportionate, but agreed to the reform compromise at European level but still.
