Big tech accountability? Read how we got here in  The Closing of the Net 

Discussion of the new law in the French Senate brought forward to 29 October.

Reports in the French media are saying that the French government has brought forward the vote on graduated response in the Senate. It will now take place on 29 October instead of 18 November as originally scheduled.

 

The new date gives less time for public debate on the law, which, it is claimed, contravenes  European law.   In particular, it goes  against the review of telecoms law as voted recently in the European Parliament ( Telecoms Package).

The European Commission  is expected to give its view on the compatibility issue on 23rd October.  The commission can block a member state from adopting a law if that law is in conflict with any proposed measures at European level.

 

It is also becoming evident that the French government will use its power as President of the EU, to attempt to eradicate the measures opposing graduated response, as voted in the European Parliament on 24 September for the  Telecoms Package.

I hold a PhD in EU Communications Policy from the University of Westminster (2010), and a Post-graduate diploma in marketing.   I’ve served as an independent expert on the Council of Europe  Committee on Internet Freedoms, and was involved in a capacity building project in Moldova, Georgia, and Ukraine. I am currently (from June 2022)  Policy Manager - Freedom of Expression, with the Open Rights Group.
