According to Ofcom statistics, the average time spent browsing online is more than 30 hours per month; when looking at youngsters aged 5-15, this time quadruples to 15 hours per week, with YouTube as a clear winner and peak time in the evening, once school, homework and other activities are over. Another Ofcom study shows a trend towards a decrease in the consumption of illegal content, which is largely due to a shift towards the use of content streaming services.
Summer means more free time, and a logical consequence of this is that a significant part of it will be spent on the Internet. Two questions thus arise: is this going to happen in an adequately protected environment? And what measures are in place in case of illegal consumption?
Both national and European institutions are paying increasing attention to the need for addressing these challenges.
As to online safety, after the Norwegian media authority published the results of a survey on fake news, the Government asked it to prioritise the work on media literacy. In its mid-term review of the Digital Single Market strategy, the European Commission identified the removal of illegal content on online platforms as one of the most urgent tasks, and both the European Parliament and the Council, in their respective mandates for the negotiations on the AVMS Directive, stressed the importance of introducing more stringent measures against online content inciting violence, hatred or terrorism.

With regard to the issue of illegal consumption, recent judicial and administrative case law shows an increase in the responsibilisation of online providers: the Rome Court of Appeal considered that video-sharing platforms with editorial teams categorising the videos should be qualified as content providers and therefore be excluded from the liability exemption under the e-Commerce Directive; Ukraine has introduced notice-and-takedown procedures for copyright infringements that are quite similar to those being applied by the Italian media regulator AGCOM; and the CJEU has ruled that the online sharing platform Pirate Bay makes a communication to the public when indexing torrent files.
The newsletter will be taking a break after this issue, but you can enjoy our latest IRIS Special on “Media coverage of elections – the legal framework in Europe” which includes several national case studies from the most recent campaigns.
The Observatory team wishes you a cyber-safe summer!
