+ - Questions Over Manufactured Votes for European Copyright Reform->

Submitted by SecurityTheatre
SecurityTheatre (2427858) writes "In the European Parliament, important copyright monopoly reforms, that would allow so-called orphaned works to move to the public domain, were voted down 14-against-12 in a committee that should have only 23 possible votes.

That means 26 votes were counted, but only 23 MPs were eligible to vote. With 12 MPs voting in favour of the reforms, that leaves only 11 opposed. Where did the other 3 votes come from?"
