Brussels, BELGIUM — The Computer & Communications Industry Association joined 8 other business and civil society groups in a letter to Members of the European Parliament expressing concerns about the proposal on the dissemination of terrorist content online. This proposal could have a negative impact on European citizens’ fundamental rights and on hosting service providers operating in the EU.

The letter urges the Civil Liberties Committee of the European Parliament to take a proportionate approach compliant with the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights and the EU acquis when adopting its opinion at the end of March. For example, this could be done by, among others, narrowing the scope of application and removing the provisions requiring hosting service providers to monitor and filter data.
