BSA Joins the European Parliament in Backing the Proposal to Tackle the Misuse of Internet Hosting Services for Terrorist Purposes

Brussels – 18 April 2019 - Following yesterday’s European Parliament Plenary backing of the Regulation “on preventing the dissemination of terrorist content online”, Eleni Chronopoulou, Senior Manager, Policy| EMEA said: “With regard to the scope of the Regulation, the European Parliament struck the right balance by acknowledging the differentiation between various types of hosting service providers. A disproportionate and excessively wide approach would have included and put at risk certain B2B sevice providers that do not share content to the general public and have no general control of or access to the content of their customers. Making this differentiation and excluding cloud providers from the scope of this legislation allows for a more targeted approach and more effective way to protect citizens’ security”.
