Is the RIPE NCC response to the Dutch regulator regarding the definition of an essential service operator public? Also, you say, "Data collection restrictions that could hinder the development of AI and the IoT." I think a lot of European citizens would prefer that the development of AI and IoT not be at the expense of their personal data becoming a private economic resource. Why does the RIPE NCC believe that, "the new ePrivacy text ... takes a restrictive approach to metadata and content data processing, to the point that the current provisions would have a negative impact on the development of things like AI, IoT and big data business."
