Thanks to improve this part with opinions from Bernadette VERGNAUD about La Quadrature du Net concerned issues (see page Help:Political_Memory to know how to do it).

25/05/2010 Written Declaration 12/2010 (ACTA)

Has signed written declaration 12/2010 on the lack of a transparent process for the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) and potentially objectionable content.

02/09/2008 Telecoms Package Plenary Speeches

Protection of privacy was also part of priorities, as well as protection of children, access providers having to provide free of charges parental control softwares to consumers.

All these progress had to be made for the profit of the many.Therefore many provisions are about equal access to people with

disabilities. People with low income or SMEs have not been forgotten. So, we tried to extend the universal services application field to

high speed broadband, this is one of the priority of the French presidency, which is a very good thing.

Now I would like to address content and copyright, which has tended to overshadow the rest of the improvements included in this text. Our goal has always be to provide consumers with general information about copyright, in accordance with the original proposal from

Commission. Until the final vote, we will work to improve the wording of the compromises, respecting the principle of neutrality for

content access. Some amendment adopted in the "Privacy" Directive, however, are quite problematic and we make sure to remove them.

I would like to thank again my colleagues and I'm waiting more precise proposition from the presidency in order to improve moreover this text until the next plenary session.
