Big win for #privacy and #openstandards in #Germany :

Brandenburg banned the usage of #Microsoft products (especially Teams) in schools.

Let's hope that initiatives like @digitalcourage will have bigger influence after this.

🇬🇧 EP Home Affairs Committee clears the way for #TERREG. This means: Orban will be deleting websites in your country, without a court order. Unacceptable and probably violates fundamental rights.
