1. The Committee on Legal Affairs
and Human Rights congratulates the rapporteur of the Committee on Culture,
Science, Education and Media, Ms Adele Gambaro (Italy, ALDE), for
her comprehensive report, and supports by and large the draft resolution.
2. Due to rapid development and day-to-day changes, online media
and journalism is a complex field which involves difficult legal
issues, especially in terms of liability of internet news portals.
The committee therefore proposes some amendments aimed at strengthening
the legal aspects of the resolution.
