Together against illegal content online!

Welcome to internet-beschwerdestelle.de, a joint project of the German Association for Voluntary Self-Regulation of Digital Media service providers (FSM e.V.) and eco - Association of the Internet Industry.

FSM and eco operate the internet-beschwerdestelle.de portal as a partner project of two separate hotlines, each with a specific remit within the project.

Anlässlich des europäischen Tages zum Schutz von Kindern vor sexueller Ausbeutung und Missbrauch am 18. November ("European Day on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse") informieren die deutschen Beschwerdestellen von FSM (Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle Multimedia-Diensteanbieter e.V.), eco (Verband der Internetwirtschaft e.V.) und jugendschutz.net mit einem gemeinsamen Video über Meldemöglichkeiten von Internetnutzern, die Arbeitsweise der Beschwerdestellen und die Kooperation mit dem BKA.
