Digital Services Act: EU Parliament against upload filter

The operators gross online platforms such as social networks should not decide in solemnity with potentially illegal content and maybe unless they can be unwilling or even solving them. For this, the lawsuits of the EU Parliament on Thursday in his initiative report to the planned Digital Services Act (DSA) with a broad majority. For the proposal for the legislation, 22 MPs, a representative of the AFD was contrary to a removal.

Rights of users true

In dealing with illegal content, the legal politicians suggest a notice-and-action mechanism. He is intended to introduce users to reports as they do on Facebook, Twitter, Tktok Co. already exist. But the operators were not allowed to decide on themselves, which happens with the reported contributing. MEPs do you want to commit them to clear EU-wide standards and thus create guarantees for the fundamental rights of users like freedom of expression.

If content is marked or removed, the affected persons should be notified and the possibility to appeal to appeal to a national dispute area. The final decision must make an independent judicial property as a court after the will of the representatives. A well-emitted European supervisory persons or a network of controllers of the Member States should enforce the rules and behave high bumps.

"Auxiliary trade" impede

"A scenario that we want to prevent with all the strength is that private companies are commissioned to monitor content as auxiliary trade and at its sole discretion", charged rapporteur Tiemo clouds (SPD) the approach. Otherwise there were too many uncertainties.

In this country, the Network Transducer Act (NETZDG) and so far the decision on the whereabouts may benefitly punishable contributions above all the operators. The Federal Government wants to change this with a counter-conversion process, but the draft is – but also under European law aspects – violently controversial.

The Parliament Committee also calls on the EU Commission to clearly distinguish between illegal and harmful content. at "Fake news" and recovery payments should give users so more control of what they are displayed. The selection should not be hit by algorithms algorithms.

No "Ex-ante control"

The deputies also clear that platforms under self-control no upload filters or other forms of "Ex-ante control" should use for harmful or illegal content. However, this is in contradiction to already adopted or prepared laws in the fight against copyright infringements and terrorist contents, where operators hardly come about around the use of automated filter solutions.

Targeted advertising wants the committee Strict regulating knowledge in favor of less intrusive, contextual advertising forms that require less data and does not depend on the previous interaction of the user with content. Personalized ads should only be with "free, informed and unambiguous approval" the user will be allowed. In addition, the appeal comes with the DSA transparent rules over the collection of data for this purpose and maintain the right to use anonymous use of digital services whenever possible.

Parliament still has to confirm the report in plenary, which is considered a formality. He then goes together with further suggest, with which the internal market committee is strong for more interoperability, to the Commission. This wants to scrutinize the power of coarse US platforms with the Law Package and, for example, miles in a new competitive instrument.
