TIE calls for reinforcing DSA’s ‘trusted flagger’ provision

TIE signed a joint letter along with 10 other organisations calling for brands to be able to obtain ‘trusted flagger’ status under the Digital Services Act (DSA), as they are the most fitted to evaluate if their intellectual property has been stolen. Online platforms should deal with priority with notifications about illegal content from trusted flaggers. The letter, including concrete suggestions to amend the legislation, was shared with key policy makers in the European Parliament and Council. Both institutions are at the moment negotiating their position on the DSA. The latest compromise text from the Parliament and the proposal from the European Commission do not give brands the possibility to be trusted flaggers. See TIE tweet!
