Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I can find none of this in the draft report.

Indeed.

I'm not sure what they're reading, but it doesn't seem to be the draft.

Maybe the point of this


As today (July 1st 21:00), we know that some so-called compromise amendments (this is an usual term in European Parliament, although there is no compromise at all, these amendments are pushed by pro-three-strikes-approach lobbyists) are discussed behind closed doors and will be tabled for July 7th, although they are not published yet.

is that the amendments are not yet in the report, but will be inserted shortly before the vote next on Monday.

You can't debate with a maybe.

Laquadrature have posted interpretations of amendments which seem clearly wrong, so I'm not going to worry - yet - that there are further amendments being dicussed behind closed doors.

As and when something more substantial appears we'll have a good reason to get excited, but that doesn't seem to be happening here.

I agree. But thanks for all the information you unearthed.
