Thank you for the nice feedback :)

Today I've tried once again via phone to speak with regular culture comitee member Martin Sonneborn from Germany, DIE PARTEI (satire party);
I especially felt the urge to do so, because tomorrow is the next culture comitee meeting and there the conservatives try to enforce amandments which turn the good suggestion of a copyright document of the green member into a very bad one with ACTA like provisions.
This time I've succeeded in contacting him. Well, not him personally, but one of his assistance.
Unfortunally I've just refered to the aforementioned issue and forget to ask him to support the copyright report of Julia Reda.
His feedback was, that he things that Martin Sonneborn will act as I requested, as they don't like the conservatives either;
he proceeded with saying, that in general Martin Sonneborn always to everything votes like this: YES, NO, YES, NO, YES, NO, YES, NO, YES, NO;
but he is confident that the amendments will have been submitted in such a way, that this scheme will cause that Martin Sonneborn always votes against the amendments of the conservatives :D .
Today evening I will start creating the aforementioned statement to the copyright report of Julia Reda;
yesterday evening I've done some preperation for it. Strictly speaking I was collecting reference sources and
created the concept of the specific statement, which looks like this:
As I ghostwrite for an NGO, which focus is on expansion broadband internet structure, I will stress the aspect
"Störerhaftung" (~'end user/private provider' liability). Additionally I will create the statement in english.
Good reference sources for critics, which I also will rely on, are the following:
