Abstract

We are legal scholars specialising in the regulation of technology and digital media companies. We address two main issues in the preliminary recommendations: <ol type="1"> <li>Any copyright takedown obligation should be firmly based in copyright law, through the simple extension of the existing safe harbours.</li> <li>Improvements in monitoring should prioritise the ability of independent journalists, civil society organisations, and scholars to access data in order to examine pressing research questions and help stimulate informed public debates.</li> </ol>
