European games industry associations welcome the EU digital principles

Joint EGDF-ISFE response on the pubblic consultation on EU digital principles

EGDF and ISFE welcome the fact that the Commission acknowledges freedom of expression and freedom to set up and conduct a business online as fundamental rights in the digital environment. Freedom of expression, including artistic creation, is fundamental to Europe’s digital cultural diversity.

EGDF and ISFE recommend that careful consideration should be given to how the EU acquis may apply to specific principles. Because the acquis, and the limitations it imposes on some of the proposed principles, may not be known to all of Europe’s citizens, businesses and administrations, it is of particular importance that any future digital principles are clear and understood by all.
