bs0d3 (2439278) writes "Right now, what is lacking across Europe, is a standard law to handle notice-and-take down's of illegal sites like the US' DMCA. Right now illegal content across Europe is subject to non-standard take down letters, some of which include no mention of what was allegedly infringed, nor in which jurisdiction in Europe it's infringed, or who to contact in your jurisdiction to challenge the claim, or even which company it is that is being represented by the law firm that gets in touch with he project. They need a system so that the notices would have to include information that makes them verifiable as correct. EU is holding a public consultation discussing notice-and-take down laws, which can be found here."

scratch that, its the EU commision not the EU parliament. parliament does not get to speak on non-legislative acts in this case, the commission is probably going to be looking at the possibility of making guidelines, which would be a non-legislative act

Makes sense to keep an eye on it; the EU commission would like to define everything as non-legsilative. They find that any democratic oversight tends to get in the way of achieving their vision. See also ACTA. In fact this may even be the avenue they tend to pursue to introduce some parts of ACTA since it's been rejected by the Parliament.
