(Rapporteur of the opinion of the Committee on Legal Affairs)

Mrs. President, the speaker, Mrs. Trautmann, told that questions on

intelectual property should not be mixed in this debate. I agree her, since I believe that protection of intelectual property, as well as protection of intimacy and another legal concepts, are already defined in other legal frameworks.
