3. European Parliament first reading (December 2006)

The European Parliament on 13 December 2006 adopted the Directive in first reading. The vote largely confirmed the Commission's initial proposal with a clear consensus on scope, co-and self-regulation, European works and the two-tier approach. It went further than the Commission proposal on independent regulators and short reports. The majority supported a strong country of origin principle. The Parliament added some new provisions, such as those on media pluralism (rejected by the Commission) and access for people with disabilities (accepted by the Commission).
