Sweden Defends Wiki Sex Case About-Face

nxsty Re:Not a mistake? (454 comments)

"What would you have them do? Ignore the accusations? Interrogate the witnesses more thoroughly so the suspect had plenty of time to leave the country?"

How about not commenting or confirming his identity?

First GNOME Census Results

nxsty Open source (175 comments)

Greg DeKoenigsberg, an ex-Red Hat employee wrote a blog post slamming Canonical for the "absolutely egregious" statistic and suggesting that Canonical has been "riding on Red Hat's coattails for years." Tough shit. This is open source, if you don't like others using your work you should develop proprietary software instead.

EU Demands Canada Gut Its Copyright and Patent Laws

nxsty Embarrasing for us people in the EU (324 comments)

We've never given the commission a democratic mandate to parcipate in negotiations like this, and we can't remove them if we don't like what they do since they're not democratically elected. Yet the're representing us, trying to enforce a position that a lot of europes wouldn't support.

French "Three Strikes" Law Gets New Life

nxsty Re:None, not without massive reform (193 comments)

But the article gives the impression that there will be no second reading in the parliament. :(

The Council, Commission and Parliament now want firmly to lash down the final regulatory framework in what they call a "trilog" procedure. If this works, no second reading in Parliament will be necessary.

EU Council Refuses To Release ACTA Documents

nxsty Re:Or in other words... (145 comments)

Ok, I missread the title but my point still holds for the council of ministers. Most decisions in the council of ministers are actually taken behind the scenes by permanent representatives in brussels which we can't vote for or hold responsbile for their decisions either. The ministers will then have to confirm the decisions but in the case with ACTA this was done by the "Agriculture and Fisheries council" (which is a part of the council of ministers) with no debate at all.

EU Council Refuses To Release ACTA Documents

and the people actually voted for them!

Actually we didn't vote for the people in the European Commission. EU is not a democracy. So whatever they do, we have no way of holding them accountable.
