Nuestras vidas pasan cada día más por Internet, donde diferentes trabas persisten por más que las fronteras físicas hayan desaparecido. El bloqueo geográfico es una de estas trabas: es lo que ocurre cuando nos impiden comprar un bien o contratar un servicio porque lo hacemos desde un país diferente al del vendedor. Los eurodiputados debatieron este miércoles nuevas propuestas de la Comisión Europea contra el bloqueo geográfico injustificado y a favor de avanzar hacia el mercado único digital.

(Más…: El PE pide más poder para los consumidores en el mercado energético )

El monarca abordó las cuestiones de la identidad y la solidaridad, y advirtió que "es demasiado fácil dar la paz por garantizada". Dijo pertenecer a la primera generación de europeos que, a lo largo de la historia, ha vivido en paz; y deseó que las próximas generaciones tengan idéntica fortuna. (Más…: El Rey de Países Bajos advierte contra el error de dar la paz por garantizada )
