Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It has been so blatant that a lot of UK left blogs are co-ordinating other means of publicising themselves

Civilized Societies Don't Call It Censorship, but Copyright | naked capitalism

Article 11: no link without a license. Article 11, otherwise known as the "Linktax" article, has created a new economic "right" for magnates of the written press. This `right', moreover, implies indefinitely restricting the possibility of citing the press online.

Article 13: no uploading content without a license. Platforms - from medium-sized providers of services storing subject material through to the giants of the Internet - will be considered responsible for any copyright infringement committed by their users, and they are bulldozed into taking preventive measures. In other words, this isn't a matter of eliminating content but directly preventing people from uploading it.
