Commission’s Vice President in charge of Digital Single Market Mr. Ansip, confirmed during a speech with the members of the Committee on Culture and Education, Monday April 27 in Strasbourg, that his objective was and still is, to put an end to the geo-blocking problem including a directive in the copyright reform, in order to warrant the complete availability of digital contents within the whole countries of the European Union.
On Monday April 27th, he confirmed his thought and the fact that it would be time to solve the geo-blocking issue. “We already proposed in the year 2006 to abolish roaming surcharges. Then (digital commissioner 2010-2014) Neelie Kroes continued with this job. Now (fellow digital commissioner) Günther Oettinger and me, we are dealing with those issues. The question is: who will be the next one?”
"I hope we will be able to abolish roaming surcharges very soon already. And I hope, and I'm pretty sure we will be more successful in abolishing geo-blocking"
“I'm under no illusions. It will be an uphill struggle”, said Ansip. Patrick Zingerle EU-LOGOS, “THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION: IDENTIFYING KEY BARRIERS ON THE DIGITAL SINGLE MARKET”
