remove or block such content pursuant to Article 14(1)(b) ECD or Article 10(2) TMG continues to apply
unchanged. Rather, the application of Article 10(2)(2)(4) TMG-GE becomes relevant only in situations where
deletion cannot be enforced. This provision is subordinate to Article 10(2) TMG, as it should normally be examined
first whether the latter serves to achieve the objective of having the unlawful content removed. If the rights holder
has not endeavoured to have the unlawful content removed, then there is no case for application of
Article 10(2)(2)(4)TMG - GE.
