[Fwd: IP Enforcement likely to be decided by ambush amendments]



Der er mer end patenter som sådan, kraenkelse skal bestraffes og.
Her er ett meddelende fra dem i Brussel som holder et öge på en ny lov for dette. Det virker som om taktik og lukkede forhandlinger er bedre for en del MEPer änd obenhed og debatt.

-------- Original Message --------


According to Andreas Dietl of EDRI, it is very probable that the vote on
the IP Enforcement directive will be structured around a series of last
minute ambush amendments tabled by the Rapporteur without public debate.

This is democratically outrageous for any bill, but even more serious
for one as legally contraversial, technically complex, and of such
fundamental legal consequence for both companies and private citizens,
as the IP Enforcement directive.


The current schedule is for the JURI report to be debated in plenary on Monday 9th February, with a deadline of Thursday 5 February for amendments.

But the voting will be held over to give time for the Council Working
Group to agree a draft common position, being prepared (of course) in
secret.

It is expected the rapporteur will then unveil a completely new set of
amendments (as rapporteur, she can do that up to the very last minute),
earmarked as already accepted by the Council.

There will be no chance to debate these amendments (the debate already
having taken place), nor to propose counter-texts (the amendment
deadline already having passed); only to immediately vote on them.


If Andreas is right about this, we should *raise hell* about it, and do everything we can to put pressure on the political groups that it is *unacceptable* to hold the plenary debate until the shape of the Council position, and its likely recommendations, have become a lot clearer and a lot more public.

There is strong pressure for this to be decided on first reading, to
make sure it is done and dusted before the MEPs from accession states
can have a say -- so it is especially important for the details of the
proposals to be available before the debate.
