Big tech accountability? Read how we got here in  The Closing of the Net 

EU Wants to Sneak in a Mini-ACTA by the Backdoor - Update

by Glyn Moody

In ComputerWorld UK, 3  September  2012

You might think that all sounds reasonable enough, but as a seasoned observer of the European Commission's persistent attempts to bend reality to fit its own agendas, Monica Horten, points out, that's not the case:

[quoted from Iptegrity.com]


the Commisson appears to be trying to re-write history. It says that Article 14 forms the basis for Notice and Action procedures. That was
certainly not the intention of Article 14.

The E-commerce directive, with its provisions for mere conduit and exemptions on the liability was the result of a political compromise
thrashed out in 2000 between the ISP industry and others, such as the copyright industries, who wanted it to incorporate a notice and
takedown regime. However, that notion of notice and takedown was explicitly rejected.

However, it is implied in the Consultation introduction that the Commission wants to Amend Article 14 in order for it to become the basis of
Notice and Action.

Iptegrity in brief

I hold a PhD in EU Communications Policy from the University of Westminster (2010), and a Post-graduate diploma in marketing. I am on the Advisory Council of the Open Rights Group.  I’ve served as an independent expert on the Council of Europe  Committee on Internet Freedoms, and was involved in a capacity building project in Moldova, Georgia, and Ukraine.
