Full text of leaked IA on review of EU copyright now available: but is it current?

A few days ago this blog reported [herehere and also here] that website Statewatch had made available some parts of the draft Impact Assessment (IA) of the Commission on the modernisation of the EU copyright acquis. 

Yesterday, the same website published the full text of the IA. 

Last week this Kat's sources warned her that the leaked IA published by Statewatch is just an early version, and that the Commission is currently working on a third "edition" of the IA. However, the same sources confirmed that this is not substantially dissimilar from the one leaked. 

Can anyone confirm or provide more information?

I can't provide information as to whether this document has changed but I have read this. The most salient feature of this document is that it makes many statements but there is no evidence to support them. It is a truly pitiable piece of policy-making. Policy without evidence must be challenged. I beg the IPKat to lead a campaign against policy based on theory without substantial evidential support. What do we want? EVIDENCE. When do we want it? Now.
