 Subject: French law aimed at combating hate content on the internet: inconsistency between the French bill and the e-Commerce Directive

In Notification 2019/412/F of 22 November 2019, the Commission issued comments on the French law aimed at combating hate content on the internet. It concluded that there is a risk that the notified draft could be inconsistent with Article 3, Article 14 and Article 15(1) of the e-Commerce Directive.

Czechia issued a detailed opinion on the same bill on 19 November 2019.

1. Does the Commission believe that France has sufficiently taken into account its observations on the bill aimed at combating hate content on the internet to ensure that it is consistent with EU law, and in particular with the e-Commerce Directive?

2. If so, could it please explain how?

3. What action does it plan to take with regard to France’s failure to respond to Czechia’s detailed opinion?
