EU vote on file sharers


September 26, 2008

The long awaited vote on file sharing by the European Union members has taken place, and it would initially appear to be that they have voted against the three strikes and you are out policy.

This is going to be great news for the groups who had been protesting against it.

It is also going to cause problems for the French government, who were the ones that initially come up with the idea of the three strikes policy.

The EU members decided to go with what can only be described as common sense.

They had three points to vote for, and kicked out the proposed amendments to the Telecoms Package for disconnecting file sharers and that ISPs should be obliged to enforce copyrights.

They did however vote in the third and final amendment, which is the importance of people to have access to digital content.
