"The privileged treatment introduced in the EMFA is hard to implement (...) and will very likely result in a situation where the very large online platforms will refrain from content moderation of any media."

"This Article 17 in the European Media Freedom Act will open the door for the media exemption. (...) We are already seeing that happening in the institutions."
5 / 9
"The very fact of how quickly media content carrying disinformation specifically (...) goes online, how quickly it actually spreads, is not being accounted for."

"Article 17 could be used to prevent effective enforcement of the DSA: platforms could very easily justify their non compliance with the DSA by provisions in the EMFA, as this is a sector specific regulation (...)."
7 / 9
"Article 17 EMFA is nothing more than another attempt to bring a very, very bad idea back to life, one that was already rejected in the DSA by both the Council and the EP: the media exemption."
8 / 9
"This is a choice between a non-existent issue of media content moderation and ensuring that users are safe online by deleting Article 17 and focusing on the DSA’s effective implementation and enforcement."
