On Monday 22nd September, FESI co-signed two joint letters with key trade associations and brands in view of the future publication of the Digital Services Act. The proposal, expected to be presented by the end of the year, should include new obligations for platforms to better combat the presence of illegal content online.

In this perspective, FESI has signed a joint letter led by the European Trademark Association (AIM) and addressed to the European Institutions, to recall the key elements that should be included in the Digital Services Act in order to create a truly fair, secure and competitive environment for brands, platforms and consumers.

Finally, FESI also co-signed a letter from the Motion Picture Association, aiming to reinforce the “Know your business customer” obligations, in order to better address the broad range of illegal content online.
