Geo-blocking consumers’ online access to goods and services on the basis of their IP address, postal address or the country of issue of credit cards is unjustified and it must stop, says Parliament in a resolution voted on Tuesday. MEPs want Europe to seize the opportunities opened up by new technologies, such as Big Data, cloud computing, the Internet of Things or 3D-printing, and to have an innovation-friendly policy towards online platforms.

The 16 digital single market initiatives announced by the European Commission last May to boost the digital economy and innovation must be tabled without delay, MEPs insist.

"We have ensured that this report on the digitisation of the EU economy, society and public administrations determines legislative and non-legislative action to benefit consumers and to preserve Europe’s competitive social market economies”, said Internal Market Committee co-rapporteur Evelyne Gebhardt (S&D, DE).

The European Parliament has adopted a number of recommendations on the the EU's Digital Single Market strategy. The EP said in a statement that it plans to "co-legislate" with the European Commission on the DSM, which was first unveiled last year by the new EC. Most of the recommendations adopted by MEPs in a large majority (551 for, 88 against, 39 abstentions) are in line with the proposals already made the EC, such as putting an end to geo-blocking in order to increase access to digital services across EU countries and ensuring equivalent consumer protection for digital services whether purchased on- or offline.

Innovation-friendly policies are needed to boost the sharing economy and online platforms but unjustified geo-blocking must be stopped, say the internal market and industry committees in a resolution passed on Monday night.

They point out that developing e-government and e-skills could help the EU digital single market to generate €415 billion a year.

Melanoma is a kind of skin cancer that is increasing rapidly across the globe. In recent years, many regions in the world have witnessed a rise in the number of melanoma cases.
