EU - EDRi And EuroISPA Attack EC's Demands For Notice And Takedown

EDRi and the European ISP Association (EuroISPA) have prepared a joint civil society/industry position on the European Commission's draft informal recommendation for the takedown of websites which have been accused of being illegal. The recommendation's scope is nominally restricted to child abuse websites, terrorism and racism. However, the proposal already represents a "mission creep" of aspects of policies used for the removal of child abuse websites and, therefore, further "mission creep" into other areas can be considered inevitable.
