The European Commission has launched a consultation on the role of “Internet platforms” – which it basically defines as pretty much any online services you can think of!
The consultation is of crucial importance because it will help define the rules that govern how you use the Internet. It will be crucial for new rules on important issues such as online law enforcement, online privacy, open data and copyright.
The right to hyperlink, the right to privacy, the right not to have your uploads deleted by YouTube or Facebook. These are just some of the issues at stake.
It is your internet. These are your rights. This is your one chance.
In order to make things easier, EDRi has created an “answering guide” – an online tool with the European Commission’s questions and our analysis to guide your answers. The guide can be found here: http://edri.limequery.org/index.php/346935/lang-en
