I was just browsing the European Commission webpage and noticed that the 
previously approved Directive named "harmonisation of certain aspects of 
copyright and related rights in the information society" has been signed
by the Council and by the Parliament. The "reference" of this Directive is
2001/29/EC and you can find it in PDF here:

Will it make software like DeCSS illegal in the member countries after they
put this directive in their national laws?
