Vote on Gallo Report postponed until autumn

Filed under: English,informationspolitik,IP Observatory — Christian Engström @ 16:33

The Gallo Report on file sharing and intellectual property has been postponed until after the summer

The European Parliament just decided to postpone the vote on the controversial Gallo Report on intellectual property rights enforcement until the autumn.

This was a good decision. All the political groups are divided on the issue, and there is an intelligent political discussion going on in the Parliament. In this situation, it is a sensible cause of action to postpone the vote.

The report will probably come back on the agenda in September, but that is for the Conference of Presidents [of the political groups] to decide.

The decision to postpone was taken by a quite narrow majority: 140 votes against 135. But it was still a good one.

  3. You know that sweden votes parlament on 19th September 2010. If the vote on gallo report would not be delayed and filesharer are criminalized the swedish PIRATES will skyrocket.
    Even if you have in mind:
    ”Sweden’s political Piratpartiet (Pirate Party) and the operators of The Pirate Bay have always stressed their independence from each other, but they are now lashed tightly together—and could soon be much tighter. If Piratpartiet has its way, The Pirate Bay won’t be using secret servers anymore. The servers will be quite public and located… inside the Swedish Parliament.”
