Brussels, 8 July 2021 – EuroISPA joins other industry players in signing a letter calling for the preservation of the E-Commerce Directive principles in the DSA.
The signatories note their support of an ambitious DSA and its objectives to protect consumers, while favouring innovation, growth, and competitiveness. However, the letter also highlights their concern that several Member States have questioned some of the key principles of the E-Commerce Directive, which are crucial elements of the European digital economy.
The letter calls for:
- A clear distinction between illegal and harmful but legal content
- The preservation of the limited liability regime
- The upholding of the prohibition of general monitoring obligations
- The maintenance of the country of origin principle
- The limiting of web-blocking obligations
