Proposed law to curb copyright enforcement excesses gets a good start in Finland

luvirini (753157) writes "There is a push in Finland to get a citizens law proposal to curb copyright enforcement excesses to be a law. There exists a fairly new mechanism where citizens can directly propose laws if enough voters give their support to that proposal. The proposals then go to the Parliament for voting as any normal law proposal from the government. The proposal has been up for slightly more than two weeks and has almost third of the needed support, so seems to be on good way as the time limit to gather enough support is six months. You can read the google translation of the proposal in here and if you are a Finnish voter you can support it on the Justice Ministry's pages"
