On Sep. 28, 2017, the EU Commission called for extensive measures to detect and remove illegal content online. The Commission encouraged online platforms to take a proactive approach and “do their utmost” in order to decrease the amount of illegal content, rather than merely following the “Notice and Takedown” procedure. The Commission published a set of guidelines titled “Tackling Illegal Content Online – Towards an enhanced responsibility of online platforms” (COM(2017) 555 final). In the near future, the Commission has indicated that it wants to implement automatic detection and filtering technologies to remove illegal content from the internet as fast as possible.
