Amendment 138/46-135 voted again

What the heck is amendment 138/46-135? It states that restrictions to the fundamental rights and freedoms of Internet users can only be put in place after a decision by judicial authorities (save when public security is threatened in which case the ruling may be subsequent).

The European Parliament stood against the telco’s pressure and presented us with another brave decision. My dear French, you're pretty much on your own now.

Though applauding this amendment, I have to agree that we shouldn’t support piracy. How? By educating people, not pursuing and harassing them. And above all with lower prices reaching copyright owners, not content owners.

PS: ok, I’m a little late, but so was the amendment since September 2008 :)
