Politico Pro reports the Finnish presidency of the Council of the European Union has drawn up new ePrivacy Regulation proposals and sent them to fellow EU nations. Finnish official Maija Rönkä tweeted that the proposals focus on updates to Articles 5-7, adding that the changes include "dividing (Article 6) into four articles to simplify the text and a temporary solution regarding the child imagery issue." The proposals come after Germany published a 77-page position paper saying it could not accept the regulation as it stands due to a lack of protections for the confidentiality of communications, which are covered in Article 6. The proposals will be discussed at the EU Council's Telecom Working Party Sept. 9. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
