The Estonian Human Rights Centre joined the “Stop Scanning Me” call

The Estonian Human Rights Center joined the call opposing the Regulation on the Prevention and Combating of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA Regulation). Why?

  • The regulation, aimed at establishing a path for filtering all online messages, would circumvent cryptography and message confidentiality. Granting permission to scan the content of our web-sent messages, photos, and conversations would compromise the fundamental rights of us all.
  • In the pursuit of an important goal (child safety), privacy, security, and the right to free expression would be jeopardized. This would harm, among others, the very children it aims to protect.

Bad things happen when good people are too passive, but together we can make a change.
