Sweden To Take On EU Telecom Package

Published torsdag 11 juni 2009 kl 20.51
Infrastructure Minister Åsa Torstensson

The Swedish results in last Sunday's European elections hit the headlines in many countries when it became clear that the pro-filesharing and pro-integrity party the Pirate Party had managed to gain a seat in the parliament.

And it seems that Sweden will now play a pivotal role in establishing what rules will apply for European internet users in the future, as ministers meeting Luxembourg Thursday decided not to officially discuss the issue, meaning it will be up to Sweden to try to find a solution to the problem during its presidency of the EU over the next 6 months. It won't be easy, with Infrastructure Minister Åsa Torstensson having to deal with a French government that wants to ban file-sharers from the net, while the European Parliament is demanding a court verdict first.
