[ NNSquad ] Re: Medina proposal abandoned in Europe
Just for fun -- Google. I find the differences interesting in themselves. I first used the URL/page translation but copying and pasting that resulted in a mixture of French and English so I used the textbox translator instead. This seems a little better. Yet we see TV adds about computers doing subtle translations across cultures as if it were as trivial as making one of Honda's robots that emulates humans in every way that doesn?t matter. ** On 20 January, in Brussels, the Committee on Legal Affairs (JURI) voted a text advocates the graduated response, filtering of online content services and strengthening the responsibility of Internet service providers (see our news). This report, said report as Medina led by the Spanish Socialist MEP Manuel Medina Ortega, is not dead, but really valid. In total contradiction with amendment 138, Paquet Telecom MEPs tabled by Guy Bono, Daniel Cohn-Bendit, and Roithová, the vote of the text has generated significant media coverage and a hardening of attitudes by some Socialists who have stressed the lack logic between the texts. While in the full context of European elections. After a spell in plenary scheduled second week of February, then postponed to March, we learn today that the report is no longer valid. According to our sources, Manuel Medina Ortega has himself served on Jacques Toubon that the report was postponed sine die. " This means that it can reappear in September, as in three years or never.

Maybe somebody who is good at both French and English can provide a decent translation of this. Here is what babelfish.yahoo.com made out of it: Last January 20, in Brussels, the commission of legal affairs (JURI) voted for a text in particular preaching the measured reaction, the filtering of the online contents and the reinforcement of the responsibility for the suppliers of access Internet (see our topicality). This report/ratio, known as Medina report/ratio because chapeautÃ© by the Spanish socialist deputy Manual Medina Ortega, did not die, but more really of topicality. In total contradiction with amendment 138 of the Package Telecom deposited by eurodÃ©putÃ©s Guy Bono, Daniel Cohn-Bendit, and Zuzana RoithovÃ¡, the vote of the text caused a strong mediatization and raised shields by certain Socialists even who underlined the lack of logic between the texts. The whole in of full framework of the European elections. After a passage in plenary session envisaged second week of February, then pushed back in March, one thus learns today that the report/ratio is not any more topicality. According to our sources, Manuel Medina Ortega even meant to him in Jacques Toubon that the report/ratio was deferred "sine die". That means that it can reappear in September, as in three years or never.
