You’re throwing a monkey wrench into the internet with all this copyright zeal.

That’s essentially what the people who created the internet said in a letter to the president of the European Parliament in regards to Article 13 of the EU Copyright Directive.

The letter (PDF), posted on Tuesday, was signed by a who’s who of internet somebodies that included the inventor of the World Wide Web, Tim Berners-Lee; Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales; and internet pioneer Vint Cerf. Together with a slew of other experts, they warn that:

[Article 13] takes an unprecedented step towards the transformation of the internet, from an open platform for sharing and innovation, into a tool for the automated surveillance and control of its users.
