The Telecoms Package is a proposal from EU Commission
+
==Introduction==
  
It says more or less the Internet will be divided into zones and as much one pays that much access to certain areas of the Internet the one will have.  
+
The ''Telecoms Package'' is a proposal from EU Commission to reform the EU’s regulatory framework for electronic communications networks and services with a view to completing the internal market for electronic communications. This package includes:
  
The idea of insane people ..
+
* a proposal for directive (COD/2007/0247) that amends 3 previous directives:
 +
** Access Directive (2002/19/EC)
 +
** Authorisation Directive (2002/20/EC)
 +
** Framework Directive (2002/21/EC)
 +
* a proposal for a directive (COD/2007/0248) that amends 2 previous directives:
 +
** Universal Service Directive (2002/22/EC)
 +
** Personal Data and Protection of Privacy Directive (ePrivacy) (2002/58/EC)
 +
* a proposal for a Regulation creating a new European Electronic Communications Market Authority (COD/2007/0249)
  
Networks as Bitnet then the Internet have been invented by scientists, first mainly for scientists to exchange scientific information. What you do to our tools is crazy.  
+
'''The ''three-strikes approach'' should be out of the scope of these legislative proposals. Nevertheless some amendments have been introduced to include the ''three-strikes approach'' in the proposals for directives of the Telecoms Package. Therefore, La Quadrature du Net is alerting about dangers of such an inclusion.'''
  
Think first! Invent something yourself and then introduce your censorship by packages in your own area. But .. are you able to invent something at all you dumb idiots writing that proposal for the EU Commission?
+
Note that the proposal for a Regulation creating a new European Electronic Communications Market Authority (COD/2007/0249) does not include anything related to ''three-strikes approach'', so it won't be discussed further here.
  
You have no right to do that this way by Telecoms Package.

Guys you start acting as Stalin's communists or Hitler's nasci bandits. Do you need the "iron curtains"? Do you want another war?

==European Parliament==
  
From here is a one step to small police countries instead of having United Europe, police countries same as for example Poland where policemen were cooperating with mafia, were earning twice or four times more than scientists, where the policemen could rape, kill etc. and almost nobody could touch them because those bandits in uniforms had guns, were getting money for new radars, cars and weapons from the EU, whilst there was almost no money for science development and new technologies development in that region of the EU.

Do you know how much an assistant professor or a lecturer/senior lecturer earns in Poland? About 500-700 EUR/ month after tax and prices have almost been the same in western countries as in Poland.

What would German, Irish or British people with a doctorate do for that money? I guess that would be their unemployment benefit if they do nothing at all.

Think how people in Central and Eastern Europe i.e. Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia etc. could afford those packages? That would ruin those countries. Is that what they want? Do they need people in Eastern Europe saying the communism was better?

Many people in those countries because of a regional currency devaluation by 50%-100% within half of a year have enough of the EU help and the EU politics leading to more and more poverty in those regions within the recent year.

What those EU Commission people do nowadays is trying to introduce censorship projects dividing EU information. Tourists are not allowed to take photos in London etc. What would be next if nobody stops them?

Please do not spend our heavily earned money for idiots from the EU commission writing stupid proposals. Give us some more money for science and new technologies development because China in robotics, car engineering, microelectronics, software and tools development become much better than Europeans who are now some 10 years behind Japan, and some 5 years behind the USA in modern technologies development.

We have similar to the Telecoms Package existing example called the iTunes services, servers and software. We are not allowed by the iTunes in Eastern European part of the EU to buy songs of British or American vocalists with Worldwide valid credit cards. I wanted to buy wonderful songs of a young British, talented vocalist Kate Fletcher ( http://www.myspace.com/katefletcherofficialsite ) on iTunes and I simply could not from Poland because the service said the songs were not available in the Polish store for Poles. Would it be an advantage? To whom?

Plenary debates on major legislative issues - State of play
 +
 
 +
Subject: Telecommunications package
 +
 
 +
This package is among the priority or strategic initiatives of the Commission Legislative and Working Programme for 2007
 +
 
 +
As a consequence of technological developments and increasing convergence of access and communication possibilities, a new telecommunications framework was introduced in 2002 and 2003. The core of the regulatory framework consists of five directives. The package presented by the Commission is the proposal for a statutory review of the previous one. The main objective of the legislative proposals is to enhance the ability of the current framework to deliver on its initial objectives by proposing adaptations that take account of experience to date and expected market and technological changes in the future. The creation of a competitive single market for electronic communications services and networks in Europe with corresponding benefits for citizens is the ultimate aim.
 +
 
 +
* State of play in the Commission
 +
 
 +
Adoption by the Commission: 13 November 2007.
 +
Based on the renewed Lisbon Strategy for growth and jobs and on the i2010 initiative, which aims at creating a Single European Information Space and at completing the single market for electronic communication services, the Commission has approved a Communication reviewing the regulatory framework for electronic communications networks and services. The initiative follows up a public consultation, and proposes policy changes in three main areas: regulatory simplification in the interest of better regulation, the development of a single market in electronic communication by overcoming regulatory fragmentation between the Member States while strengthening and better coordinating national regulators, as well as improving consumer protection, users' rights including security and privacy, and the efficiency and accessibility of services. The Communication is accompanied by the relevant set of  legislative proposals.
 +
 
 +
* State of play in the Council
 +
 
 +
The Commission presented the package at the Transport, Telecommunication and Energy Council of 29, 30 November and 3 December. Delegations agreed
 +
with the objectives of the Commission's proposals. However several Member States expressed their doubts related in particular to the need for a creation of a new European Agency and to the extension of the Commission's competence in terms of regulatory conditions or frequency administration. A progress report is foreseen at the Transport, Telecommunication and Energy Council of 12 June 2008.

 +

* Forecast for the plenary debate
 +
 
 +
Leading Committees : ITRE and IMCO
 +
Taking into account the calendar at the responsible committees' level (vote on 16 June), the 1st readings could be foreseen at the July plenary part-session. A common position could possibly be adopted by the end of the year and the plenary vote in 2nd reading could be held during the first quarter of 2009. Sensitive package in the context of the end of the current legislature.
 +
 
 +
To achieve in time the 2nd reading, it is essential to carry out the first reading in July.
 +
 
 +
Thus the last date for the adoption in committee would be on Monday 16 June in Strasbourg, although this date would not respect the "cooling-off period".

Revision as of 11:50, 28 April 2009

Introduction

The Telecoms Package is a proposal from EU Commission to reform the EU’s regulatory framework for electronic communications networks and services with a view to completing the internal market for electronic communications. This package includes:

  • a proposal for directive (COD/2007/0247) that amends 3 previous directives:
    • Access Directive (2002/19/EC)
    • Authorisation Directive (2002/20/EC)
    • Framework Directive (2002/21/EC)
  • a proposal for a directive (COD/2007/0248) that amends 2 previous directives:
    • Universal Service Directive (2002/22/EC)
    • Personal Data and Protection of Privacy Directive (ePrivacy) (2002/58/EC)
  • a proposal for a Regulation creating a new European Electronic Communications Market Authority (COD/2007/0249)

The three-strikes approach should be out of the scope of these legislative proposals. Nevertheless some amendments have been introduced to include the three-strikes approach in the proposals for directives of the Telecoms Package. Therefore, La Quadrature du Net is alerting about dangers of such an inclusion.

Note that the proposal for a Regulation creating a new European Electronic Communications Market Authority (COD/2007/0249) does not include anything related to three-strikes approach, so it won't be discussed further here.
