After doing a good bit of research on IPRED2 and talking with others, I made
this page:

One problem with the letter we were working on is that many EU member states
already have criminal sanctions for intentional, commercial-scale copyright
infringement.  This means our SCO example will be met with: "Yeh, but that's
the USA.  EU member states already have these provisions and I see no harm

So we need to rethink the letter.

(I don't have a draft.  Just passing on that URL and info.)
