Statement of the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Poland, Italy and Finland to point 39 of the CRP I agenda of 20 February 2019 regarding the DIRECTIVE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL on copyright in the Digital Single Market.

Most notably we regret that the Directive does not strike the right balance between the protection of right holders and the interests of EU citizens and companies. It therefore risks to hinder innovation rather than promote it and to have a negative impact the competitiveness of the European Digital Single Market.
Furthermore, we feel that the Directive lacks legal clarity, will lead to legal uncertainty for many
stakeholders concerned and may encroach upon EU citizens’ rights.

We therefore cannot express our consent with the proposed text of the Directive.

A coalition of European militaries ready to react to crises near the continent’s borders was launched on Wednesday with Finland becoming the 10th country to join, amid calls by French President Emmanuel Macron for a „real European army.“

The French-led initiative would not conflict with the almost 70-year-old, U.S.-dominated NATO alliance, proponents say, but reflects in part concerns about a more isolationist United States under President Donald Trump, as reported by Reuters.

Nachdem die finnischen Sozialdemokraten im Januar 1918 die Macht erobert hatten, überzogen ihre Gegner das Land mit einem Bürgerkrieg

Die Unterstützung der finnischen Reaktion durch deutsche Truppen hatte ihren Preis. Am 9. Oktober 1918 erklärte das Parlament gar den deutschen Fürsten Friedrich Karl von Hessen, einen Schwager des Kaisers, zum König von Finnland. Dieser trug seine Krone allerdings nur zwei Monate.
