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

28/03/2010 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.

22/04/2008 Change of viewpoint

I am willing to admit it. I was wrong.

Christel Schaldemose used to be the usual uninformed pro-copyright politician, but that changed in 2008, as stated in the above quote. In this article she explains how she got better informed through lots of reading, contact with various lobbyists and in particular IT-Politisk Forening (a danish advocacy group similar to La Quadrature du Net), causing her to change her viewpoint. Since then she has done a great job of defending civil rights on the internet.
