  1. 1.

    It is legally justified that the cost of blocking measures and de-linking orders is to be borne by the providers of access and search engines.

     
  2. 2.

    Only in the situation where a specific measure should prove to be disproportionate, taking into account its complexity, its cost and its duration, to the point of compromising the viability of the technical intermediaries’ business model in the long term, is it appropriate to assess the need to impose the cost, entirely or in part, on the rightholders.
