EU Not Backing Piracy, But It’s Quite Clear What they Are Backing…

The European Parliament today voted on a resolution to tighten up anti-Piracy laws. An initial amendment had suggested that the bill would essentially endorse file sharing if not for commercial purposes. Under the final draft it appears that this position has been moved away from, though enough leeway has been left for national governments to interpret and define the scope of the directive. So basically itís still too early to definitively say what this means for the music industry in Europe. Donít you just love European parliamentary process.Ö
