Ora siamo arrivati a un punto conclusivo, ieri notte Parlamento e Consiglio hanno raggiunto un accordo su questo testo:
Text to be inserted in Article 1:”3a. Measures taken by Member States regarding end-users’ access to or use of services and applications through electronic communications networks shall respect the fundamental rights and freedoms of natural persons, as guaranteed by the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and general principles of Community law.Any of these measures regarding end-users’ access to or use of service and applications through electronic communications networks liable to restrict those fundamental rights or freedoms may only be imposed if they are appropriate, proportionate and necessary within a democratic society, and their implementation shall be subject to adequate procedural safeguards in conformity with the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and with general principles of Community law, including effective judicial protection and due process. Accordingly, these measures may only be taken with due respect for the principle of presumption of innocence and the right to privacy. A prior fair and impartial procedure shall be guaranteed, including the right to be heard of the person or persons concerned subject to the need for appropriate conditions and procedural arrangements in duly substantiated cases of urgency in conformity with European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. The right to an effective and timely judicial review shall be guaranteed.”
mmm … ho sensazioni contrastanti, certamente meglio del testo precedentemente proposto dal Consiglio, ma molto molto peggio del 138 originale che, non dimentichiamocelo, era stato approvato per due volte a larghissima maggiornza in prima e seconda lettura dal Parlamento europeo nella precedente legislatura.Questi i commenti a caldo del BEUC:
Telecoms Package/Amendment 138: Parliament manages to salvage some level of protection for internet users Last night, the European Parliament reached a compromise with the European Council, that whilst did not explicitly guarantee internet users’ rights to a prior judicial ruling if suspected of illegally downloading content, did at least establish procedural safeguards that now need to be implemented by Member States. This includes the right to a prior, fair and impartial procedure, the right to be heard and the presumption of innocence. Monique Goyens, Director General of BEUC, the European Consumers’ Organisation, said: “It has been long hard battle but at least all sides have acknowledged that fundamental rights of users need to be guaranteed in the digital world. “However, these rights will be meaningless if Hadopi-style laws are allowed to be enforced at national level. Consumer organisations will be keeping a close eye on developments in all Member States to ensure that these new laws are implemented fairly and correctly. “But more fundamentally, we need a re-examination and overall assessment about what constitutes illegal downloading and an evaluation of the supposed economic harm to the music and film industry. Just last week, for example, it was shown that 72 % of people who admit that they download illegally are the ones who spend the most money buying content legally.”
Che aggiungere ? Vedremo a questo punto se, utilizzando le pieghe di incertezza presenti nel testo del Telecom Package, si vorrà introdurre in fase di implementazione anche in Italia una sorta di Hadopi, sarebbe assurdo, inutile, costoso, come ci spiega meglio Guido qui e avrebbe l’unico effetto di determinare un incremento enorme delle attività sommerse e dei relativi tool a disposizione come ci spiega Stefano qui.
