Dear Communications Networks, Content and Technology,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

All information regarding the drafting, release and removal of the medium.com article "The Copyright Directive: how the mob was told to save the dragon and slay the knight". This includes any information related to the perception, promotion and criticism of this article, internally or externally.

I want all information (drafts, memos, notes, letters, emails) to be included in this request, regardless whether the Commission considers them to be important or not for filing and archiving.

Yours faithfully,

Mathias Schindler

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your e-mail dated 16/02/2019. We hereby acknowledge receipt
of your application for access to documents, which was registered on
18/02/2019 under reference number GestDem 2019/923.

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days.

The time limit will expire on 11/03/2019. In case this time limit needs to
be extended, you will be informed in due course.

You have lodged your application via the AsktheEU.org website. Please note
that this is a private third-party website which has no link with any
institution of the European Union. Therefore, the European Commission
cannot be held accountable for any technical issues or problems linked to
the use of this system.

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
via that website, and not the European Commission. For further information
on your rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

We understand that the third party running that website usually publishes
the content of applicants’ correspondence with the European Commission on
that website. This includes the personal data that you may have
communicated to the European Commission (e.g. your private postal
address).

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the
Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by
the AsktheEU.org website.

If you do not wish your correspondence with the European Commission to be
published on the AsktheEU.org website, you can provide us with an
alternative, private e-mail address for further correspondence.

In that case, the European Commission will send all future electronic
correspondence addressed to you only to that private address.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Communications Networks, Content and Technology,
Dear Carlos Remis,

thank you for the confirmation of the registration of my access to information request. I am pleased to learn that the Commission has apparently dropped the rather silly strategy of requesting postal addresses in this stage of requests under Regulation 1049/2001. I applaud this unexpected outbreak of reason.

Yours faithfully,

Mathias Schindler

Dear Mr. Schindler,
We refer to your e-mail dated 16/02/2019 and registered on 18/02/2019
under the above-mentioned reference number.
Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a
position to complete the handling of your application within the time
limit of 15 working days, which expires on 11/03/2019.
An extended time limit is needed since different services must be
consulted on the requested documents.
Therefore, we have to extend the time limit by 15 working days in
accordance with Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding
public access to documents. The new time limit expires on 01/04/2019.
We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.
Yours faithfully,
