Gallo wins vote on harder measures against file sharers

Filed under: English,informationspolitik,IP Observatory — Christian Engström @ 12:35

The Gallo report on copyright enforcement was unfortunately adopted by the European Parliament

The Gallo report on stricter intellectual property rights enforcement was just voted in plenary by the European Parliament. The rapporteur Ms. Gallo from the Christian Democrat group EPP won, and our side lost.

The report was adopted with 328 votes in favour, 245 against, and 81 abstentions.

Before the vote on the report, there was a separate vote on the alternative resolution supported by the Greens (including me as a Pirate), the Social Democrats and the Left group. We lost this vote with 235 votes in favour, 373 against and 48 abstentions.

This was a setback, but the fight for a free and open Internet and sensible copyright reform goes on regardless.

The positive spin on the vote would be that only half the members of the parliament actually supported the report. This was a very controversial report, and the discussions on the matter will no doubt continue.

But today in plenary was a defeat.

  2. How exactly was the question formulated, that the parlament voted on? In my opinion, you can’t vote on a report. You can vote on certain claims made in the report, or whether it’s good or bad, if it should be published in paperback or hardcover, etc. But not simply on the report.
