[IPTEGRITY.com] Will EU lawyers white-out Amendment 138?
EU lawyers say that Amendment 138 has to go because of a legal technical problem. And they insist on a poor replacement that will do nothing to stop the imposition of copyright enforcement measures. Given that we know the political agenda for both copyright and Internet restrictions, shouldn't they do better?
The European Parliament's legal services will deliver their opinion on Monday in respect of Amendment 138, the Telecoms Package amendment that seeks to protect Internet users rights in respect of copyright enforcement and Internet restrictions.
The Parliament's lawyers are expected to say that Amendment 138 does not comply with the legal basis for telecoms legislation, which falls under Article 95 of the EU Treaty.
