A black day in the history of EU legislation

In an undemocrating manner and without public discussion, the European Parliament has passed a "IP rights enforcement directive" to "counter intellectual property piracy".

How can it happen that the wife of the head of one of Europe's biggest Media Companies (Vivendi International) can propose a Directive in January, that passes the Parliament in early march, when usually this process takes half a year to years?

This makes me sick and angry. I start to completely loose faith into European lawmakers. While fighting another EU directive on the patentability of software for years, another directive gets proposed and passes so quickly, that no public reaction can take place, nobody can even contact their representative MEP's.
