Industry and civil society share concerns on Regulation on terrorist content online with MEPs
Brussels - 18 March 2019: EuroISPA and eight organisations representing civil society and industry sent a letter to the European Parliament highlighting concerns on the proposal for a Regulation on Preventing the Dissemination of Terrorist Content Online.
The co-signatories suggest several measures to improve the proposal, such as limiting the definition of "hosting service providers", amending the extremely short one-hour deadline to comply with removal orders, and clearly aligning the proposal with the e-Commerce Directive.
