02/09/2008 Telecoms Package Plenary Speeches

Committee on Culture has taken this subject very seriously from the beginning, because one cannot legislate on electronic network or on spectrum while ignoring the reality of content that circulate on networks or use spectrum. This cannot be achieved only with pure technical concerns, nor economical ones, that would not take into account of the goals of the cultural policy and defense of diversity.

The reality of a digital world forces us to work together, television operators and electronic services providers, and to legislate to promote an internal market for telecommunications, which has become inseparable from the audiovisual market.

We also need a balanced response to the problem of unlawful content on Internet, that makes everyone faces his responsibility in a fight that should interest everybody in order to protect both children and culture as we know it.

Therefore I support these texts as a whole as they've reached this stage and I hope that our debate and the final vote won't be infected by not informed enough external pressures.
