Press conference by Tonio Borg, Member of the EC, on the initial findings of the 2012 Sweep, an EU wide screening of websites selling games, books, videos and music, which can be downloaded to a computer or mobile device

Tonio Borg, Member of the EC in charge of Health and Consumer Policy, gave a press conference to present the initial findings of the 2012 Sweep, an EU wide screening of websites selling games, books, videos and music, which can be downloaded to a computer or mobile device. The check shows that a huge number of these websites do not appear to comply with consumer protection rules. This is all the more worrying when vulnerable consumers, i.e. children, are targeted. National enforcement authorities will now contact the companies concerned to enable them to clarify their position or correct their website.
