Proposed Geo-blocking Regulation: Cross-sectoral Letter

In a cross-sectoral letter about the ongoing trilogue negotiations on the proposed Geo-blocking Regulation, companies are asking to exclude intangible digital content and audiovisual services from the scope of the Regulation and its mandated review. Negotiations should be based on what has been soundly evaluated in the Commission’s public consultation and Impact Assessment.
