Charts on Incitement to Terrorism

In accordance with article 14 of the e-Commerce Directive (2000), online platforms must take down illegal content expeditiously once they are aware of its existence. Particularly, a fast removal is required when serious harm is at stake such in the case of incitement to terrorism. Moreover, the Communication on tackling illegal content online of the European Commission (2017) stipulates again that incitement to terrorism is considered illegal content. To combat online radicalisation and contribute to public security, the European Commission proposed a Regulation on preventing the dissemination of terrorist content online (2018). The proposal passed the first reading in the European Parliament and is waiting for the Council of the European Union’s first reading position.
