The Digital Republic Bill adopted by the Senate

Although the draft digital bill was adopted by the Senate, special attention is drawn to the number of amendments adopted, despite the government’s opinion. In total 13 government amendments were rejected during the debate, which is not surprising given that the Socialist party does not have a majority in the Senate. Certain legal provisions risk posing problems vis-à-vis the European regulation, i.e. the interdiction to process French data stored outside of Europe or the amendment obliging platforms like e-Bay to automatically declare the earned income of its users. The next step is for the Joint Committee composed of deputies and senators to agree upon a compromised version of the bill.
