#POLAND: Ruling Party Hints It May Not Fully Implement New EU Copyright Law; "Stifles" Freedom Of Speech

[world politics news]

The leader of Poland's ruling Law and Justice Party has hinted that the government will not fully implement the EU’s new copyright reform law, saying it stifles freedom of speech.

Speaking at a convention in the northern city of GdaƄsk on Saturday, Jaroslaw Kacznski said his conservative ruling party would strive to defend the rights of internet users in Poland after the controversial new rules were voted through by the EU Parliament. Kacznski said the newly approved EU Copyright Directive would be brought into Polish law - by the Law and Justice Party of which he is head - "in such a way that the freedom of the internet is preserved."
