A new study has found that blocking access to torrent and linking sites results in the opposite effect. Instead of driving people towards legal websites and services, many of the blocked sites simply move to other domain names where they enjoy a significant and sustained boost in traffic.

ITALY’S POSITION ON THE DIGITAL SINGLE MARKET, EXPRESSED FRIDAY MARCH 13, TO THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION.

renzi

Italy has provided  Friday March 13  his contribution   to the definition of  European Digital Strategy.

The Government's position on the digital single market was sent to the European Commission's DG Connect.

The 6-page document is divided into seven sections.

The document covers various aspects,including the broadband connection, the so-called Internet of thing, the digital school, the strengthening of the European Security Agency (ENISA ). 

The most critical point , however, is that of the Copyright , in which Italy appears to assume a position of rearguard.

This is the first of the 7 points.

 

1. Digital market and investments: improving interoperability, fostering e-commerce, harmonizing fiscal policies

A strategic objective of the Union should be to support programmes for infrastructural investments that ensure interoperability of systems and technologies and the development of e-commerce potential, which represents a new frontier for businesses, especially SMEs.

In order to do this, there should be an intervention that provides tools aimed at fostering the creation and establishment of European businesses, overcoming national constraints and optimizing both the infrastructure and the operational methods (inter alia the activities of shipping and delivery). It is crucial to draw a harmonised regulatory framework for the establishment and online registration of companies, also across borders.
We also need to fully harmonise the rules on consumers protection, products guarantee, as well as on taxation, i.e. aligning VAT rates of digital products to the rates of their material correspondents, such as in the case of e-books.

On this regard, for example, the EU should focus on the harmonisation of the platform for VAT payment so as to facilitate access of SMEs to the market.
