I can never make up my mind about Commissioner Kroes. She often says intelligent things about IPR, the open Internet, etc.
For example, this:
The European Union endorses net neutrality principles, which state that telecommunication companies may charge extra for some services, but need to tell customers what they are doing.
The European Commission has adopted a “wait and see” approach with Neelie Kroes, Commissioner for the Digital Agenda, stating in April that Brussels would spend 2011 “closely looking at current market practices”.
Ms Kroes promised to present the findings and publicly name “operators engaging in doubtful practices” at the end of 2011.
But she’s also part of an organisation that often seems to act cluelessly in these areas.
