EU telecoms package?

I haven't been following this issue lately, so was a bit alarmed to see a tweet from Sophie in't Veld MEP, saying that while the Liberal in the European Parliament will oppose the "three strikes" law cutting off access to the internet, the Socialists and Christian Democrats are in favour of it. Can anyone point me at the latest on this?

I don't know about the *latest*, but this was my response from Proinsias De Rossa, in May, about the bill. Note how it doesn't actually address any of the issues I brought up! I think a lot of the MEPs just vote on auto.

I am am not sure of the line ups but get a general impression of hidden gloom re fighting the compromise amendment (ie telling the EP to toe the line.) The person who suually knows everything is Monica Horten c/o ipintegrity.com..

Monica's version:

"In last Tuesday's Conciliation committee meeting, the rapporteur, Catherine Trautmann , and the negotiating team (Herbert Reul and Alejo Vidal-Quadras, ) were given a clear mandate NOT to accept either the Council's old proposal for an Amendment 1.3a, or the Commission's alternative version of it. MEPs Stavros Lambrinidis, (Socialist, Greece), Phillippe Lamberts (Green, Belgium) and Lena Ek (Liberal, Sweden) asked them to obtain the Council's written objections to Amendment 138 and the policy principles which it protects. Since then, the Green group has publicly issued a call for the European Parliament to concentrate on the policy principles enshrined in Amendment 138. "

Next meeting :tomorrow
