James,

Could you articulate how, in your view, the implementation of the proposed
directive, or otherwise, would affect the Wikimedia Foundation's mission of
"encouraging the growth, development and distribution of free,
multilingual, educational content, and to providing the full content of
these wiki-based projects to the public free of charge," please?  Because
if you can't, then the answer to your question has to be "No, it isn't".

"Rogol"
