GSMA ETNO Position paper on the proposal for a regulation on preventing the dissemination of terrorist content online
This document provides for GSMA and ETNO members’ position on the European Commission’s proposal for a regulation on preventing the dissemination of terrorist content online (TCR). GSMA and ETNO fully endorse the objective of the European Commission to tackle the dissemination of material that acts as incitement to violence and terrorism online. At the same time, we are concerned that the draft regulation as presented by the European Commission is too broad in terms of scope, and could unintentionally capture a number of services which do not meaningfully contribute to the dissemination of terrorist content online. It could also harm the offering of business-to-business cloud services, which is e.g. very crucial in the scope of industrial internet, including some of the cloud hosting services offered by our members.
