[post - published] Statement after the 12/09 vote in the EU Parliament on Copyright
Today's vote was lost, and I wanted to have a reaction on that. I didn't want to make one more article about why we should have voted against, etc, this has been done by many people already and... they have not been heard.
So the draft I made is a probably more accusing than our previous statements, and the press is pointed at clearly. We cannot have a healthy debate without a press doing their job, and they didn't do it. Who is going to say it, if not us, we who were insulted by them?
So I wanted to take the opportunity to say that, and remind everyone that the fight is not lost, and even if today's vote had been a success, we would have had to keep on fighting no matter what.
