Stefano Quintarelli, Member of Parliament, Italy.
Online services have become a core part of our daily lives and every person should have the right to use them, even privacy-concerned citizens who don’t want their profiles being analyzed and exploited. Privacy-concerned users should be granted the right to pay for the service they obtain, compensating the operator for the loss in advertising revenues. Users would be more aware of the value of the service they obtain, fueling competition and increasing consumer choice. Furthermore, this service price can be the basis for interconnection tariffs for interoperating service providers.
