The second IMCO/ITRE hearing with Sylvie Goulard will conclude in a couple of minutes. The hearing gave her a fair chance to address the gaps that remained open in her written answers. We will learn whether she managed to convince a 2/3 majority of the political groups in IMCO and ITRE in a few hours. Stay tuned!
Axel Voss claimed that it was a mistake that the sport rights amendment got into the Copyright Directive at the JURI committee vote. This week, however, the EPP group questioned Commissioner-designate Vestager what concrete plans she has on illegal streaming of sport events! #savetheinternet
I regret that Margrethe Vestager is happy about the outcome of the copyright reform process, as she stated in her today's hearing in the European Parliament. The copyright demonstrations in Europe showed that people are concerned about their fundamental rights on-line and this is something we will need to consider during the discussions about the Digital Services Act.
Digital agenda is in the new Commission structure split between Margrethe Vestager, Sylvie Goulard, and Mariya Gabriel. I am looking forward to collaborating on promoting competitiveness and digitization while protecting fundamental rights on-line. No time for procrastination. I am meeting Margrethe Vestager in 15 minutes and Sylvie Goulard tomorrow. 🙂
Just a kindly reminder that I am looking for an assistant to my capacity of a Vice-President of the European Parliament. This position is still open and the deadline to apply is tomorrow! https://forum.pirati.cz/viewtopic.php?f=572&t=48438
Security updates installed, firewall active. Hopefully, I can go to an event for hackers. ;-) #CCCamp19
I am traveling to CCCamp in Germany today, where I'll participate in a panel discussion about intermediary liability tomorrow. CCCamp is an international event for hackers and associated life forms providing a possibility to exchange technical, social, and political ideas. The train of Czech Railways was more than 2 hours late, so I had to stand between Brno and Pardubice in a RegioJet train 🙂 I am probably not going to catch the train to Berlin; however, I'll hopefully get there eventually. 🙂

I've been nominated by Greens/European Free Alliance for Quaestor of the European Parliament. Big thanks for the trust! I want the Parliament to be more open and transparent as much as I want to promote digitization and environmental protection, which are some of the core topics of the Pirate Party.
