10:01:31 Soundbite by Mario Sepi, President of the European Economic and Social Committee (in SPANISH) saying that the purpose is not having a new legislation, but having an effective legislation on consumers rights, because even the most beautiful legislation in the world if it does not guarantee consumers rights in cross borders sales or internets sales, it would not be helpful. 00:00:29

10:02:10 Soundbite by Viviane Reding (in ENGLISH): you all know that we are leaving in a Single Market of more than 500.000.000 of consumers; but when you go online and try to shop you wouldn't realise that you are in a big Market; and those 500 000 000 consumers are some of the most task envy, innovation hungry, consumers in the world; but the Single Market is letting them down when they go online. 00:00:49
