Divisions in the government – MP is against the S of the copyright directive

On Friday morning, collected on EU affairs in the Swedish riksdag to take a position on the controversial copyright directive.

the Issue has been strongly debated before the EUROPEAN parliament's vote recently where the yes-side won, and it is according to information to dagens nyheter, one of the issues it lobbats on in the parliament in recent years. Most of the Swedish meps voted no to the proposal except some of the socialist meps. Thus, there was also a split in the socialist group.

On one side stood those who claimed that giants like Facebook will create automatic filters that take away everything that would be in violation of copyright and thus restrict freedom of expression. And on the other side are those who want this directive to the benefit of individual authors.

Morgan Johansson (S), must anchor regeringslinjen in EU affairs and is expected to submit a proposal, which is to release the directive before the upcoming council of ministers in Brussels. But the other ruling party are not in the mood.

" I will vote against the government's line, I will vote down the directive. It is too far-reaching when it comes to restrict the freedom on the net. I follow the party line, we go to elections in the european Parliament, " says Lorentz Tovatt, (MP), member of parliament and the climate change and energy spokesperson.

There are good elements in the directive, considers Tovatt, and takes up the example of fair remuneration for cultural workers.

" But it is much too far as regards the länkskatten and uppladdningsfiltret. It would mean a strypsnara on the free internet, " he says.

It is according to the Tovatt first time in the four-and-a-half-year-long cooperation between governments which MP voted against the S - despite strong disagreements on a range of issues.

According to a rundringning SVT News made expected the opposition parties also say no to the directive which means that the government's proposals still awaited fall.

the DN has sought justice minister Morgan Johansson for a comment.
