Free Knowledge Advocacy Group EU

Giving Free Knowledge a Voice


The Free Knowledge Advocacy Group EU unites the European Wikimedia chapters and communities so they can have a clear and coherent position on major legislative and political changes affecting the vision, mission and values of the Wikimedia movement.

Read more about it or see the short Statement of Intent outlining our priorities.

What legislative files are we working on?

  1. Digital Services Act (How to moderate content on the internet across different platforms, including Wikipedia?)
  2. Digital Markets Act (When is a online service a monopoly? Should there be extra rules for such services?)
  3. Data Governance Act (open government data, data altruism, business to business data, data hubs)
  4. CDSM Transposition (How will the new Copyright Directive be transposed into national law in the Member States?)
  5. TERREG (How to recognise and handle terrorist content online?)
  6. e-Evidence & Europol Regulations (How can a judge in one country request user information from an online service in another country?)
  7. Disinformation (fact-checking, reliable sources, tools for moderation, advertising on "fake news")
  8. AI/ML (liability for AI systems, IPR on AI produced content, open source for AI systems)
  9. ePrivacy/GDPR (user privacy, entrusted to EDRi)
