    Step by step, freedom will be conquered back. 478 no, 39 yes for 165 abstentions (what could be their motivations?) it is the brilliant victory against the secret text, against the disclosure of the internet user's id when downloading illegally...
    Any thoughts?

    That's a lovely thing to wake up to, thank you. And thank you Europe.

    A victory for liberty, but the war is definitely not over.

      Got to agree with both of you here, a big win for freedom of information and privacy and I am glad the Europeans did the right thing.

    I was glad to see the vote yesterday though it could still be revived by the EU Commission.
    The lack of information to the general public in forming an oppinion on the bill made it look like a secret deal to protect a number of cartels.
    I am sure those working in medicine in developing countries will be quite glad about the result.
