Abstract: We prove, subject to certain hypotheses, that a positive proportion of the points of the Riemann zetafunction and Dirichlet functions with primitive characters are simple and discuss corresponding results for other functions in the Selberg class. We also prove an unconditional result of this type for the points in fixed strips to the right of the line .
