The Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers (ZPP) expresses its concern about the return of the so-called “stay down” provision to DSA compromise text. Stay down obligation requires companies to ensure that illegal content does not reappear on the platform after its removal. The proposal does not define exactly how intermediary service providers would have to fulfil the above obligation. There are concerns that in practice it may lead to general internet monitoring and set a standard, which is technically impossible to attain.
