António Marinho e Pinto and the Case of the Misplaced Viagra

This is a story about António, a Member of the European Parliament who voted in favour of the creation of censorship machines and having a link tax in all member states of the European Union. In his talks with journalists he laid out how he feels people are making a profit by copying, remixing and deriving work and it’s not fair for the content producers.
