Dear colleagues,

The (provisional) results of the European Parliament' vote in first reading
on the draft EU Copyright Directive on 10 February 1999 are now available
in all official EU languages at http://www.europarl.eu.int/

1. choose your language
2. scroll down to activities
3. click on "plenary sessions"
4. scroll down to "Minutes-Part II (texts adopted)"
5. click on "by A4-number"
6. choose A4-0026/99 and click on search

You will find here the Minutes of 10/02/99, based on Document No.
C4-0079/98, called "Proposal..." which contains all by the EP plenary
session on 10 February adopted amendments in comparison with original
Commission text.

You will also find a link to Document No. A4-0026/99 which is the Barzanti
report itself with the results of the Legal Affairs Committee vote and with
all opinions and amendments from all other three committees involved dated
28 January 1999.

The full text of the complete debate in European Parliament's plenary is
also available at the Europarl server, language changes each time with
speaker (this is Europe, isn't it):
(1. choose your language
2. scroll down to activities
3. click on "plenary sessions")
4. "Verbatim report of proceedings"
5. choose part-session and format
6. choose 9/2/1999 I
7. In the pdf version it is page 46-60.

It is expected that the European Commission will present their amended
proposal by the end of March. However, at the debate on 9 February in the
EP, Commissioner Monti already announced that the European Commission could
only accept 28 of the 58 amendments, could take another 14 into
consideration provided the wording is changed, and reject 16, especially
those calling into question the Commission's approach to exceptions,
introducing additional exceptions or straying too far from the scope of the
directive.

Best wishes,
Barbara Schleihagen
