Note: Since for more than a year I’ve been reading about the downsides of the eIDAS legislation. Their sources where mostly US entities. The same stuff happened when the EU implemented the new GDPR and now similar things happen with the. upcoming eIDAS 2.0 and the the upcoming AI law. Here I outline the EU position to clarify the situation. This isn’t news, but Since the anti e-IEDAS campaign keeps pushing the agenda it’s still relevant imo.

"The discussion on the eIDAS Regulation has entered its most important phase in the European Parliament and Council. Mozilla has recently launched a campaign in the form of a website aimed at political decision-makers, but also the general public.

“As with the Google response, you are taking a very US-centric approach to lobbying that is only going to reduce the chance of influencing the outcome. EU politics are not the same as US politics.”

Edit 1 & 2: Sorry, no ill intent. It seems something went wrong while shortening & copying this link title:" ESD Experts Support Trilogue Compromise and Emphasize Necessity for Highest Security of the Internet

ESD is a European lobby group consisting of the CEOs of Europe’s leading trust service providers.

      Tnx, but I was hoping for a new take. Unfortunately it’s an open letter signed byUS companies and institutions, like ICANN and the Internet Architecture Board. Also the letter adresses similar concerns about the same art 45 as Mozilla

      It does somewhat validate my ealier point that it seems that the issue is also about the loss of digital power from US companies and institutions.

        Nothing much is new since then so far as I know. Here’s more recent coverage from the EFF.

        Edit: Further web browsing turns up the latest open letter which has signatures from “552 scientists and researchers from 42 countries, as well as numerous NGOs.”
