eco signs a letter to the European Parliament: e-Evidence Regulation urgently needs to be improved

An amalgamation of 24 civil society groups, including media, Internet, experts and journalist associations, urges the European Parliament in an open letter to revise the recent compromise proposal in the draft e-Evidence Regulation.

eco has found fault with the fact that the new draft still does not provide sufficient transparency for providers of digital companies concerning the extent to which the rights of their users are protected by the requests of investigative authorities and what the respective procedures for the notification of national authorities look like. From the point of view of the Internet industry, this is problematic, as it puts companies in the position of disclosing information about their users without adequate consideration of their rights.
