Steps in a Positive Direction
In contrast to the Netherlands Innovation Platform, which has now been written off as a utter disaster by organisations such as Kennisland, the Audiovisual and Media Policies section of the EU does seem to be conducting an interesting public hearing on the future of on-line and peer-to-peer content. Deadline is October 13th. In Holland there is no direct public consultation procedure, like you see in the UK, Ireland, even Brussels. Instead, input is confined to a small elite circle, who's main activity is ensuring it remains that way. Not sure whether The Hague will learn from Brussels though.
