GRID

Back in 2000, just as the internet was going mainstream, Europe enacted the E-Commerce Directive, setting clear limits on liability for digital platforms. Platforms weren’t held responsible for illegal material uploaded to their sites. Instead, they were responsible only for taking down illegal material when informed.

Today, the European Commission is planning to update these l protections with a new Digital Services Act. Governments, courts, and public opinion are demanding that internet firms police and prevent illegal material from being posted on their platforms.

What is the right amount of responsibility and liability for Collaborative Economy Companies? Should a new single European regulator be appointed for the Collaborative Economy? Should platforms be protected if they proactively work with municipalities to fight illegal activity?

Prabhat Agarwal of the European Commission DG Connect will open the discussion.
