Unjustified geo-blocking

Key points:

In its Opinion, the EESC:

  • considers the proposal from the Commission as a welcomed step further in the creation of a Digital Single Market,
  • urges the Commission to put forward ambitious and well-defined proposals for an ambitious Digital Single Market in favour of consumers and companies,
  • underlines that justified geo-blocking resulting from different Member States' industrial policies and diverging legislation is also damaging the development of SMEs and scale-ups operating in Europe,
  • points that the EU should focus equally on the remaining obstacles in the Single Market that discourage or hamper traders from selling on-line and/or off-line across borders.
